African mahogany box with wenge bowtie inlay on the 4 sides. The lid proved to be a real challenge to finish due to reverse grain. Used 3 coats of Watco clear and then did the 3 step Beall polish. Was about to pitch this project because of the reverse grain. Careful sanding, wet sanding, card scrapping…...nothing seemed to help very much. Decided to polish and I’d say I’m 99% satisfied with the results that process had in appearence. The sides, front, back and bottom presented no problems finishing but the top was a real PIA.
