All done with my original design cupcake box. It’s made from Bird’s Eye Maple, Bocote, Bloodwood, Walnut, Oak, and Padauk. Some things need to be tweaked if I make another one but it came out pretty decent for a prototype. Finished with mineral oil and lacquer.

It measures about 7-1/4” long x 5-1/4” wide x 2-5/8” high. Interior depth is about 1”.

I’m going to sell this one on my Etsy shop.

Very nice looking I am sure it will sell.

For finishing you mentioned “mineral oil and lacquer”. Are you saying you sprayed lacquer over mineral oil? I would not think that any finish would stick to the mineral oil.

Thank you!

I used a spray rattle can lacquer over the oil after letting it dry out for a day. I’ve done this in the past with other oils after they cure and have never had a problem. I use the Rustoleum high gloss clear lacquer spray paint.

Really really clever! And well executed.

I’m curious – is the top all one piece?

UncleStumpy – The top is segmented and done in sort of an intarsia style. It’s glued to 1/8” birch to form a solid top piece.
