All wood has been reclaimed. The main box is resawn maple with cherry box joints. The heart is cedar. The topper is made from alternating strips of maple and cherry. I oiled it with Linseed then applied a sealer coat of gloss poly, then 2 more coats of poly after sanding with jewelers paper. It was a great project and a gift for my Mom’s birthday ~ she loved it!
