These two boxes are made from Oak and Walnut, one with Cedar top and Bottom
the keys are of Wenge and cedar.
the taller box was of the same walnut piece cut and spliced with maple and wenge.
The smaller cedar topped box was finished with Poly and then buffed with wax to create the glass like sheen.

Bruce those are some really nice looking boxes. Try to post some larger pictures and if you can shoot some shots of the interior. We are an inquisitive bunch here :-)).

Great Boxes. But as Bill says. small pictures are almost as bad as no pictures.

Hi Bruce,

I like the boxes. With regards to the photos you might want to consider breaking this into two posts and putting more pictures of the individual boxes. I would like to see additional angles and a picture of the inside as well.
