This was a fun project, I enjoy making boxes a lot. This wood is from the fellow that gave me a gloat in exchange for a Cribbage board, you may remember this from one of my posts http://lumberjocks.com/sedcokid/blog/31652 . Anyway it is made from Cruly Maple with a veneer of Black walnut burl (this is the first time I have worked with veneer). I also made a band of Cherry and Poplar to accent the Black walnut veneer on the top. The finish is a very light almost clear stain as a sealer with numerous coats of wipe on poly. I chose to buff on the Beal system and then used used a hand rubbed coating of Renaissance Wax.
All comments are welcomed.
Thanks for taking the time to look at this project…..
