Congratulations, the birdseye jumps off the webpage at the viewer. Very nice work with a beautify wood combination – great finishing job.

Excelent stuff. So… I am curious… what type of finish did you use on this box?

Holy….thanks everybody! This box recieved a blend of Tung and Varnish (about 8 coats IIRC) rubbed out then waxed.

Not the easiest finish in the world, but it sure is pretty.
