I used a knotty pine and walnut?? for both boxes The darker wood was salvaged from a skid/pallet (yes i’m one of those guys).

so Walnut is my guess, maybe mahogany?? but fantastic figure none the less.

Sanded too 320 grit
Finished with a couple coated of poly
(Clear Satin finish for first box with the sliding lid , and a Clear Gloss finish for the the second box)
Fine Steele wool in between poly coates.

Good looking boxes! And free wood make them even better.
Save money on wood and spend it on more tools!
