I made this box as a gift for my Dentist who helps keep my bank account lean. It represents the Frank Lloyd Wright style. The plans came from an article in wood magazine. The wood is Padauk and maple. The finish is mylands sanding sealer,(#@$##%&**)=Indicates difficulty in brushing a smooth coating. Topcoat is Deft gloss lacquer. comments always welcome. Thanks for looking.
