Thanks, Doug. But a little clarification.

I used the water colors to help the figure pop a little more (black, red, orange, and yellow). It turned out to be a good choice which added a lot more depth than I expected.

After everything dried and I gave it a good sanding, I used Colonial Maple stain followed by multiple coats of Maple-tinted Tung Oil. I’m not sure how many coats I’ll put on it, but this is a practice box for others to come.

I’ll probably write up some of what I’ve learned when I do the next one.
