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.

More exceptional work. Wow. Thanks for sharing this stuff with us Ryan. And again, terrific attention to detail on the inside.
