Nice box Ron. I realy like walnut as it is easy and enjoyable to work. Have you tried using spray on lacquer as a finish? Dries very quickly and doesn’t gather dust. You can re spray again in about 30 minutes. One of my favorite finishes after using a coat of boiled linseed oil.

Nice box! I’ve got some quilted black walnut waiting for me to finish the box. Too dagbone busy with work and commuting. I agree with Greg the WhoDat. I spray Deft satin lacquer and absolutely love what it does to the appearance of the wood. You can wet sand it just like an automotive paint job (and also shoot straight lacquer thinner to get it to reflow) and get some tremendous results. Note that I have done the same with Minwax polyurethane- sprayed it with excellent results, in spite of what it says on the container. But I DO shoot it outside.

Walnut is also my favorite. The figure on the top really catches the eye.

Walnut, if not my absolute favorite, certainly in the top three. Nice clean lines and proportions in this project. Thanks for posting. BTKS
