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

That is beautiful. I like how the simple design shows off the wood.

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.
