Yes I was trying to be funny with the title. I had some leaved over curly & Sapele from the Trestle Dining Table I recently finished. I really like the look of the 2 together. It’s much thicker than all my other boxes & it was a little more difficult cutting the tails & pins. Got to get hinges for it still.

I think the splined miters look so good. Lovely dovetails too! What kind of finish would you be applying? Please post photos of the box after applying finish.

All I usually do to them would be paste wax. Any suggestions?

@antiquegarageguy I love how shellac brings out the grain. I used three coats of shellac, sanding with 0000 steel wool between coats, then polishing with furniture polish (Paul Sellers’ method). The results are beautiful. I just posted a project but it isn’t approved yet. When it does, you will be able to see the finish using this technique.

I came across something call OSMO, from Germany it is a hard Wax product that can be brushed or rubbed on.
