Here is a box made from Maple & Walnut. It’s lined with black felt. Finished with Tung Oil and (3) coats of Spray Lacquer. The box was made to hold a tin of ashes from our deceased cat.

It came out beautiful, like the great contrast of wood colors and it makes a great home for the pet cat. Well done!
