Just another box. Outside of box is cocobolo, inside of box is black walnut. Top is book-matched figured walnut with ebony and spalted maple inlay. Box size is 14” X 10” X 3”. Thanks for looking.

Very tasteful box. Nicely done.

The finish is Watco Danish Oil (cured), followed by 8 to 10 coats of satin poly, then rubbed out.

Great looking valet box! I love the walnut, and the book matched lid!
