This box was made from a hunk of QSWO i found in my uncle’s garage. It was a real gem, with some great grain patterns.
The inlay includes aspen and cherry. Before staining there was way too much contrast, and i wanted the grains to do the talking this time, not the colors, so i faded everything together with a dark oil stain. Finished with 2 coats of wipe on poly and a coat of paste wax. Also I experimented a little with sanding shadowing, which is slightly evident on the right side of the aspen grain.
All comments welcome.
