Thinking of a different way to do a box I tried a few ideas I have not done before. The top is thick maple and the bottom PG Cherry.
I can’t say I was impressed with the “pre-finished” idea as of course the engraved area is not finished, and the finish itself is a bit rough needing a 2000 grit sanding to smooth it up. The color too is fairly bland compared to other cherry wood I have used though I suppose there is a lot of variation there. There is a need for such but one cannot tell easily with the masking on,
