Just finished this one today. Whew! Have 4 more, but, I have until the middle of Jan to get them done. This is a mix of Maple, Oak, Ash, and Walnut. Finished with Minwax Satin Poly. Also, a couple o pens I needed to finish everything up. They are acrylic. I appologize. I didn’t wanna do em, but, well, ya know how it is.

Thnx for the looks, and good, bad, and/or ugly comments appreciated. Merry Christmas to all. Have safe travels over this holiday season.

You have been VERY productive this season ZZ, and made some really great projects. You should be very happy with you accomplishments, I actually like ALL of them.
OK now for something ugly: Ted
Hope you have a great Christmas and a New Year full of more amazing projects.

Nice box Roger. I guess I need to get that BS box book as I hear lots of good ideas/designs in it.
