This is a little oak trinket box I built this weekend. It is 3” x 3” x 2” and has a walnut inlay in the front. It is finished with paste wax over danish oil. The inside bottom is covered with a dark brown velvet.

Nice, just the right amount of oak meeting the right amount of walnut.

I am not really fond of Oak, but that is a very nice looking box.
