This is a box I made for my niece who is also my Goddaughter. It was for her first birthday. It is made of mostly cherry. I like contrast so I put two maple strips in the lid. The bottom on the inside is lined with felt. The carving on the top and bottom was done with my home made cnc router. I describe the cnc in another project if you are interested. I wasn’t using the best cnc software back then so the cuts didn’t come out as nice as I would have liked. It’s also possible that I didn’t know what I was doing :-)
The finish is 8 coats of Formby’s Tung Oil Finish. After the first 3 coats I sanded with 1200 between.
Thanks for looking!
