Thank you all.

The cherry one is my favorite too. I rubbed it with tung oil and it really looked good…..

Those are really nice jewelry chests. And changing woods was a good idea to give each one its own individuality. I have to agree about the bc being a favorite. It is a gorgeous wood but it is hard on blades since it contains silica. But it works well and finishes up beautifully. The finish that you put on these chests highlights the beauty of the wood well.

I have so many projects and so little time I think I need to have some one retire withme to help out. I have to make this J box for the two girls in my life as well. But I think I would change mirror to square not round what were you thinking….
