SkinnyGoomba, those things are insanely nice! If I may ask, what are you asking for one?

Thanks Mikeman! Good question and I'm not sure just yet as the big variable is still the lacquer finish. I've had one of my other pieces finished in that way but it was a one-off and not a group.

3 of these are going to be jewelry boxes and three will be humidors. The jewelry boxes I've yet to determine what the liners will be, I've used suede in the past and while it's very nice to feel, it is easily dirtied. I'm thinking I may use shagreen, which should be a bit sturdier and not lose the luxury edge and history of use in jewelry boxes (usually an exterior).

Why not silk?

Had some time to work on these:

unfinished liners, they will never actually be 'finished' per say, but sanded to about 220grit. It's correct to leave them bare.

Those grey marks are epoxy filler, that will get dyed the color of the wood prior to lacquering. When using raw veneers of these exotics they sometimes have irregularities.
