Made these 2 jewlery boxes for my daughter and daughter-in-law. The top is a rose inlay from Rockler. The rest of the box is out of curly maple. The box sides where stained with a walnut stain at first to make the curls pop and then sanded back and then stained with an oak stain. Ten sprayed 6 on coats of water base poly on all. All General water base finishes, pretty much the only stuff I use now. I have a HVLP sprayer and works great for me. I also flocked the trays inside with black flock and also have a section that has black velvet covered foam for rings. Left the trays inside a natural maple color. Any coments or questions feel free to contact me.

nice work. I have never stained Maple to accent the curl. I have seen people use dye, etc, but have only used Boiled Linseed oil to pop the figure. This looks interesting. Great presents.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
