Small boxes made from leftovers. 6×3, routered out the interior and flocked. I used walnut danish oil on them to see if it would pop the curl. Seems to have worked nicely. Thanks

Love the curl. You might give aniline dye (water or oil) a try on some of the maple also. It can do a nice job popping the grain also.

Nice! You milled out the interior of a billet of maple?!? My hero! That’s a lot of hogging out. Love that curl.

Thanks all.

Aniline dye is on my list of things to try. I still have some “scrap” pieces to play with.

As for the milling. Kind of a pain but I build a jig and cut out 1/4” at a time. They’re only a little over an inch deep so not too bad.
