This is my first post in this site and I appreciate any help given in advance.
I have built a jewelry box from 12/4 walnut that I bored out the inside to keep the design to a single piece of wood. 7” wide by 11” long The cover has dado’ed inserts of curly maple and zebrawood 1” wide. I routed an island on the bottom of the cover with the reverse of the bore from the cavity.
I am describing it as I can’t get my camera to work.
My question is this: With such a contrast of wood colors, how should I approach this as far as finishing goes? I want something that makes the walnut richer and darker but doesn’t take too much of the pale color from the maple or the zebrawood.
If someone could give me a brief step by step process I would greatly appreciate it.
