Really nice box Derek. I never get tired of oak. It’s a wonderful wood to work with. What did you use to finish it?

Thank you. I’m still learning about finishes, and may not have done it right, but a couple coats of sand and sealer, sanding between the coats then several coats of wax and buffing.

Really like that box. The lid really sets it off. Great work

Beautiful keepsake box, Derek. How did you cut the bevels on the lid? I’m guessing the table saw?
