I made this box with Burr Oak. The tray has a Maple, Red Oak and Mahogany for the bottom, and Poplar for the sides and center.

Very nice, gwolfe! Did you use something to darken the coarse grain?

Thanks Echofive. I used a mixture of stain. 4 to 1 ratio with golden oak and red oak minwax stains and then 3 coats of minwax satin poly.

Good looking box! Like the finish, it really makes the pretty grain patterns pop. Well done!

This is a fine box and the wood is beautiful.

Hi Gary, I keep going back and looking at those Boxes you made. They are beautifully made. I am going to have to put them on my favourites list as a to do project in the future.
