My brother was in town for the weekend and we got to build this matching Sapele mahogany continuous grain mitered shadow box and keepsake box with wenge splines. The front of the shadow box has permanently installed glass and the back has a shallow groove cut out to secure the back panel. The keepsake box has a crotch walnut top and bottom along with brass hinges. The insides of each box were sanded to 320 and topped with 2-3 coats shellac. They only received one coat of shellac on the outside but will be finished with wipe on poly at my brother’s house.
