I made these as a wedding present for my niece and her new husband. The box is Bloodwood, the board is Bloodwood, cherry and maple.

I’d like more photos. They both look great…. especially the box!

Thanks for the kind words. The finish is my tried and true 2/3 lacquer—1/3 thinner. 3 to 5 coats and an 1800 grit final sanding. I rarely use stain on my projects unless I am trying to match an existing piece.

THe box was 6” x 10” and about 3 inches deep. THere were no dividers inside.
