Good job on the box, Senior. What did you use for the finish? I'm pretty new to woodworking and I haven't yet developed the ability to look at a project and tell what was used for the finish. I like how your box turned out.

A "simple" box? I guess it is all a matter of perspective.

Very, very nice.

Great box Chief, your neighbor would be crazy not to love it. If not my emails below, shoot me a line. LOL. Nice work on that top, I like the way it slopes down on the corners, nice finish too.

Trick,

I used Danish Oil on the Paduk as this oil will darker the wood as much as Tung Oil will and this allows the wood to maintain its natural color. As far as the top, Cheery will always darker with age and especially if the person allows the wood to set in the natural sun, so I used Shellac as the sealer and urethane-varnish mixture to protect it from changing color to much. I wanted the cheery to retain a lighter color. I also allowed 24 hours between coats and at each application I buffed the box out with 0000-steel wool. the final coat is wax. I hope this helps.

Apparently, your idea of simple is vastly different from mine. Or you are just speaking a language I don't understand. It's a beautiful box and a great gift.
