This a little project completed last week. It is a jewelry box done with two species of Brazilian woods: vinhático and imbuia (the last a.k.a. Brazilian walnut). Both have beautiful grains and I think that combination and contrast was interesting.
I tried to do a bookmatch in the lid, but the grain was a little faint. But I think it was satisfactory for one first time.
Finishing was sanding (grits of sandpaper 80, 120, and 220) and steel wool. After, two coats of beewax.
