Default Curly Jarrah and Fiddle back blackwood

Blew my mind anyway.
Friction sealed Scandinavian oil, No extra wax, Poly or anything else.

So here is the box in it's entirety. The carcass is Curly Jarrah, with Birds eye Huon Pine compartment dividers. The top consists of a Curly Jarrah panel surrounded by a Fiddle back Tasmanian Blackwood border. The hinges are square Quadrant hinges from Anton Gerner Furniture. The finish is friction sealed Wattyl Scandinavian oil coated with UBeaut Traditional Wax (Neutral colour??) The combination of high grit sanding and wax gives a brilliance to the timbers and clarity to the grain.

Regards,

Rob
