A couple of trinket boxes happened while I was working on another project today. You know, while glue set and stain dry I like to keep busy. Curly maple with an unknown burl. Finished with Tung oil. Will wipe on some Poly when the Tung has set.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful boxes there and wild looking wood. Maybe someone can identify it. Great job.
