Update: I gave this one to Bill.Another Palm Box, this one is bubinga with a highly figured piece of myrtlewood for the lid.
The finish is Deft lacquer, the lining is a piece of fabric from an old Disco outfit. Not really, but it wasnt a good choice. The jewelry is something I got my wife from one of those machines at a pizza parlor, the one that takes two quarters and has the crane with a claw that drops down and comes up empty most of the time. Well, I got this :-)

Your palm boxes look great Andy. They would make great gifts for Christmas and could be used to store a lot of different things.

Your finishes bring out the best in the woods you use. I would love to learn to apply finishes the way you do.

Andy, I love the palm boxes. I tried to make my first box yesterday and learned some things, but don’t think I even want to post pictures on here. Any chance of you posting some directions for my skill building?
