Default Hope Faith Cross Box

Just finished up this box utilizing the Hope Faith Cross pattern that is in the pattern vault. It is a truly amazing pattern and very unique. I have used it to make a wall hanging cross but thought it would be nice to incorporate it in a box.
I used it on a basic style that I make with only having to alter size by a minor bit. Added the angels to the sides to give it more character.

The woods used are Maple and Fumed White Oak.
Fumed White Oak is basically white oak enclosed in a tented area with ammonia. The fumes from the ammonia reacts with the tannins in the oak and darkens it to a deep brown. It is safe to work with after the process.
Thank you for your time. John

Very nicely done! Thanks on the information about darkening oak, as I wasn't aware of that.

I had never heard of fumed white oak either. It really darkens the wood a lot. It is beautiful. How deeply will it penetrate (i.e. how much could you sand off before it started turning lighter again?)

Very nicely done. I have heard of this fuming procedure before but have never seen it done to something. Thanks for sharing this information with us.

Thanks guys. The color runs through the whole thickness and does not sand away. I have seen it really darken the board to almost black. This process kind of makes the Oak look like Wenge...But maintain the character of Oak.

Nicely done. Perhaps a how to on the fuming would be very much appreciated.
