Seal-A-Cell Padauk and Curly Maple Box

About This Post

"Made a box to hold all my Hanayama metal puzzles. Using the Rockler Woodworking and Hardware box joint router jig to make the box joints and also using hinges from Rockler. The box is made from padauk and curly maple from Ocooch Hardwoods and finished with General Finishes Seal-A-Cell finish. Now the puzzles all have a home."  GF's Seal-A-Cell is an unusual combination of oils, urethanes and waxes, and has served craftsman for decades as the best wipe-on clear coat to get that "natural" look on beautiful woods. The oils penetrate deep into the wood to highlight the figure of the wood, and the urethane ensures durability. It can be used as a standalone finish or you can follow with multiple coats of Arm-R-Seal topcoat to enhance durability. It can be used as a wood conditioner to control penetration of stains, used to dilute other stains and as a base to add universal tints to achieve custom colors.
