This is a nice box. The contrasting woods do justice to the piece.

Thanks for sharing.

How did you finish it out?

Excellent work! How did you create the shape of the lid? Sanding?

This is finished very simply with 3 coats of aerosol Watco gloss lacquer. I sanded with 320 grit in between coats. The top is a pretty cool process that I cannot take credit for and is highlighted on the WOOD website with a cool video here:

It could be done with a spokeshave as well or chisels, but this way is much cooler.

Very nice, I have that issue of WOOD magazine and I thought about makeing it. I should, yours turned out very nicely. I want to make the asian styled desk clock. It’s made of, I belive, lacewood, wenge, and maple. It will be cool. I just have to save money to by the wood. :)
