I recently completed six jewelry chests using a variety of woods. In the back row (l to r) are Pecan and Maple, Zebrawood and Walnut, Curly Maple and Goncalo Alves. In the front row (l to r) are Birdseye Maple and Cherry, Walnut and Cherry, Cherry and Walnut. The Curly Maple and Goncalo Alves chest is shown in more detail. All finished with four coats of Deft Danish Oil and then, after curing, buffed with the Beall buffing system.

These are all very nice. I like the contrasts you have achieved with the different wood combinations. Lucky recipients if they are gifts, lucky purchasers if you are selling them.
