The boxes were finished with one coat of hand rubbed sanding sealer, rubbing the sealer into the open grain and inclusions. After sanding a wipe on coat of polyurethane was applied and sanded. The final finish was Johnson paste wax applied with a worn-out scotch pad then buffed. I experimented with several stains and finishes but leaving the finish natural wood and waxing seamed to give it a warm natural look that felt good to the touch.
As a side note Rounds were saved from the shredder after the very old Mesquite tree was cut down for a nature walk parking lot.

Interesting!

A 'very old mesquite tree' was cut down so as to create a parking lot for a nature trail.

Good Grief!!!
