Had a piece of scrap from an old Degoose style cutting board laying around. I knew someday I would find a use for it. Originally used some quarter sawn white oak and bloodwood. One trick I use on finishing qs oak is to use yellow die as a first treatment to make the medullary rays pop. Takes some nerve to die a nice piece of wood yellow but it does work, be sure to try on a test piece first. Using Minwax Gunstock stain gives the piece a nice old timey antique look. Finished with several coats of sealer and lacquer. Soss barrel hinges, a felt lining and a 3 inch craft mirror finish it off. I also added a elastic strap to hold a phone or credit cards.
