This was built for a fellow BOTL. It’s made from Koa, Tiger Maple and the inlay design is made with Walnut and Maple. The interior is of course Spanish Cedar. Please enjoy.

Thank you. First I sanded it starting with 600 and working my way to 2000. The maple was dyed with a warm oak waterbase stain then it was also sanded to a 2000 grit finish. Then came the fun part. I brushed on 6 coats of lacquer going opposite directions every time. Once they all cured, I sanded everything flat with 320 and did 4 more coats. Now it was sanded starting with 600 again and ended with 2000 and a rubbing compound. Now a coat of automotive wax and a nice, big Opus-X cigar.

Well, you can tell….even in photos….that the finish is something special. I’m sure in person it’s unreal. Really good stuff. Thanks for the info.

Did you build square built up stock for the corners then round it? I really like that detail and would be interested if you don’t mind sharing..
