These are a set of shadow boxes for my oldest daughter to hang on her wall. A fun little project for Christmas. Smallest is Quartersawn White Oak and Walnut with Maple splines. Middle is Walnut with Maple splines. Large is Yellow Birch (strikingly similar to hard Maple) with walnut strips and Maple splines. All are finished with 3 part varnish (BLO, Oil Poly, Lacquer thinner).

Chris, several nice techniques here. The wrap around stripes, splines, inlaid walnut, and tight joinery take real craftsmanship. Good work. I wish you had included dimensions so I could get a better sense of scale. This is a wonderful gift for you daughter. Keep boxing and keep posting.
