These box bodies are made from maple and have splines made of roasted maple and the lighter is jatoba. The lids are cherry and mahogany. Finished with a 3 applications of polyurethane clear coat and buffed to shine.

I’m very glad to be able to post projects here again it’s rewarding to read the comments from everyone.

Roasted Maple, it’s hard maple that has been baked in an industrial oven. Temp and time I don’t know. When it’s finished the maple turns dark brown and becomes very dry and extremely easy to cut.
