This project is constructed of 1/8” spalted maple laminated to 3/8” walnut, with bloodwood for the inlaid corners. The lid is lift-off friction-fit.There is no finish on the box other than buffing and waxing on my three-wheel system. I generally start with an oil finish, but I liked the natural color of the wood and didn’t want to darken it any more than necessary.
I titled it “Silky” because that is how it feels to the touch. There is nothing quite like buffed and waxed maple for a wonderful sensory experience.
Thanks for looking. As always, comments and questions welcome.
