All very nice Malcolm, but that dark walnut...wow. Drop-dead gorgeous piece of wood to start with and how ever you finished it just is beautiful. Almost surreal looking at it!!

I like them all, Malcolm, Maple is my staple wood,love it, and you did a fine job as always. I like the way you space those little spline joints. Good job finishing too.

Several months ago I found a fellow in Gnaw Bone, Indiana that had the walnut. Ended up with 2-truck loads of it. Got the spalted maple from a fellow in Xenia, Ohio. Got the tiger maple from a place in Deputy, Indiana. Beautiful wood is hard to come by. The finish on these boxes is MinWax Wipe-On Poly - about 5 coats. I mix gloss and satin together to make semi-gloss since they don't sell semi-gloss. I generally add a little more gloss than satin. After about a week after the last coat of poly I apply a coat of Lakeone Buffing Wax. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Those are beautiful!! Good designs and nicely carried out - good job.

My daughter has as many tea flavors as I do Starbucks coffee flavors (all dark - the good stuff!); looks like I need to make some of these for her.
