This is a small box I made for my wife. I used three types of maple; curley, ambrosia and birds eye. Used the same clear process of wet sanding between each coat to obtain the clear finish bringing out the unique texture and grain of the different woods used. Blue velvet was used to line the box giving it a nice rich finish. Thanks for checking it out.

Nice job Pat. I am seeing more and more splined miter joints and I really like the look. Keep up the good work.

Nice. Was the clear coat a poly or lacquer?

Very nice job—love the use of three maples. Must have used lacquer to have kept it all from yellowing, correct?
