Walnut and maple. 2 coats of Watco, 3 coats of rattle can Helmsman poly.
Drawers are flocked inside.
Thanks for looking.

Nice box sir! I’m assuming you utilized your shopsmith bandsaw. How are you sanding all the curved surfaces?

Thanks guys.
MrHart, I use a Ridgid oscillating spindle sander and lots of hand sanding.
