The input was for the most part was to use Wenge for the interior. So….here it is. Please keep in mind I have not decided on a finish yet. I am leaning towards a Danish Oil type of blend.

Trays made of Wenge and Ambrosia Maple.

Please pardon the photography…I’m not great at it. Should have used a tripod.

Looks great Greg. Glad you are making good use of the Ambrosia Maple.

very good work and a great choice of wood.. i think you’ll be happy with any of the lighter danish oils.. the walnut goes almost black and the dark grain in the maple should pop.. i love to turn Ambrosia Maple, it’s great then any light oil and it’s twice as nice.

I would like to suggest that you use shellac or a water borne acrylic. it is never a good idea to use oil or an oil based product on the inside of any project. The odor stays around almost forever and effects anything placed in the box.

I think that you made a good decision on the Wenge.

Very nice looking project.
