I received a piece of Japanese chestnut to make a glasses case.
The wood originally was 8mm thick x 1 meter long. I cut it in half
and used it for the case, then resawed the leftovers into 2, 3mm slices.
It’s finished with carnauba wax

Nice job with that piece of wood. That is a nice curl, shown well.
I really like that you posted a view of the wood prior to the product.
