Long time lurker here and still a newbie at the woodworking, but thought I should share.

I had some time off over the holidays and did these two boxes for fun. The rectangular one is sapele and Cherry. The square one is sapele with a spruce top.

The sapele was leftovers from the new table leaf that I did you see in the background.

The finish is 5 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal wiping poly. I must admit you all were right about the difference a quality finishing product makes. Previously, I was using a wiping poly from a brand you would find at a big box store. The difference between it and the GF was night and day/

Nice color contrast. GF tends to be my goto finish. I had questions on a project and they were great with providing information on what product was a good match.

The woods look great together and you did a nice job on these.

Now all you need is a thumbnail pic/image and tell us a little about yourself in your home page. Congrats on your first post.

Mason, I liked your designs. The finish really does bring out the colors. Keep boxing and keep posting.
