Thanks for the ideas. It is all glued up. I have sanded it all to 220 grit. The white is not a finished color. I am hoping to pop the grain with something and then do a spray lacquer with something in a spray can since I don’t have a sprayer.

Knothead, I looked at the Watco Danish Oil (Natural) today at Homedepot and almost bought it, but went with BLO, just because it is what the plans suggested. If you think the Danish Oil would be better I will get some. Would I apply it to the whole project, maple and padauk, or just the maple? If just maple, what if I get some on the other wood, will it mess it up? Do I apply it and then wipe off like BLO? If you don’t mind giving me the complete rundown that would be awesome.

BTW, you box looks great.
