Toasted maple and walnut pegs. 11×5.5×3.5 Danish oil finish and wax. I think it needs trays with some light colored wood. This is a Peter Loyld like box. They have enough little things going on that it makes you think, not hard thinking fun thinking and thats what I like about this hobby.

What is Toasted Walnut, and how do you achieve it? I love the color. Great work, too.

Wow! It’s very attractive. I love how you featured the “defect” on the front. I really like this piece.

Get a grip! For me the finger pull is the best part though the old school old money look is perfect too.
