No stain, just a poly coat. Nice wood to work with.

I can’t believe the poly changed the color that much.

The light colored box was a prototype made from pine to get an idea of the size and ratios. The raw wood on the bench is before the poly.

Nice box – like the bookmatched top panel.
What hinges did you use?

Beautiful. I love all the details… the inlay, the hinges, the lock, the bookmatched top… obviously a lot of thought went into this little gem. Very nice looking box.

-- Happy woodworking!

Fabulous box! I lead a church group of young women. They all want to make a box for their keepsakes. Could you please help us out with plans etc. They especially love the key.
