This curly maple box finished with amber shelac and then lacquer is a real eye catcher and virtually looks like tiger stripes!

Nice wood AND box. The shellac gives it a nice color.

Great box. The curly maple is outstanding and I like the way you made the top with the insert standing very proud. Good work!
