I just finished this box for my brother. The body is cherry, cedar for the miter keys, and the lid insert is 1/4’ strips of half inch cedar and cherry glued up in an alternating pattern. I had a lot of fun making this one and love working with the cherry because it’s so much harder than cedar and sands up so silky smooth. I finished it off with wipe on poly sanding with 400 grit between coats and it ended up with a great smooth finish. I am far from perfect but getting a little better with each new project and that’s alright by me.
