My first box and also my first venture into any wood not sold at a home improvement store (didn’t expect red oak to be so much cheaper at a hardwood lumber store than at my local big box). Curly maple sides with Zebra wood top and wenge splines. I read how to match the grain on all four sides and it worked out pretty well. One side is slightly off, I had too trim it back a little so it doesn’t match perfectly. I know what I did wrong so should be able to get it right next time. I finished it with four coats off Watco oil, three coats of spray lacquer, and Johnson’s paste wax. Thanks for looking and any comments and constructive criticism are appreciated.
