I'm looking to make a box that is very similar to this:



What kind of wood (and finish) would you say this is made of?

Thanks,

sunny somerset!
looks like oak to me maybe she oak to be precise. its hard to comment on the finishing but this result could be achieved easy enough by using furniture makers wax.

the other wood shown is a pine of sorts.

Thank you. I did think the inside was pine but thought the colour of the outside was a little dark for oak.

Thanks

Difficult to say with the size of the image but I would say both inside and out are pine...the outer being stained with a mahogany or dark red/brown stain.
