The hideous box idea made from 3 different woods is coming along nicely. I think that by the time I’m finished it will surprise me.

Does it look better now?

Before

Now

I just rubbed a little oil on it. The whole thing will have to be sanded down anyway and nothing of a finish will be left.
I plan to darken up the oak a lot more, I just don’t have anything dark at the moment. I like the gel coats. I think They are amazing.

Thanks Monte, I think with the right finish and some accessory hardware it’ll look good, The lid is amazing.

I haven’t taken a new pic, but yesterday I got some mahogany gel stain for that oak and it matches the other colors much better now. It’s much darker.
