Love this box, it is made out of oak with tiger maple top. Engraved with my home made CNC router.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking.

I love the maple. If you don’t mind, what kind of finish process did you use for the maple? I’ve got a nice piece of curly maple that I’m going to use for my vice chop and would like to make the most of the figure.

The finish is done by a hand rubbed coat of blo/thinner/poly, then a few coats of Shellac sanding in between with 400 grit. Nothing specail but it works and the smell isn’t to bad for inside the house. So far it’s been working for me.

Nice looking box for sure. Great looking maple. The home made cnc works pretty good. Nice job on that too.
