That cedar is very vibrant.  I'm guessing it will start to mellow out to a brown over time.  Never used it myself.

Nice work on the boxes.

Thanks.

Insides were given a finish..this time around....building more for looks than the Cedar smell.. Cool
   
and, since the outsides had been hand sanded to 320 grit...gave that a second coat..
   
End view, and .... Cool
   
A view of the top....may look around for some smaller locking rings..
   
As these were the smallest Lowes had

later, I'll get some 0000 steel wool, and rub the box down...almost done... Winkgrin
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Steel wool has been bought....will be giving this box a good rub down....and try to get some better photos when done....

Then I'm headed off to rehab a few block planes.....maybe even go on a Rust Hunt? Uhoh    Not much left in the scraps bin.....may have to lay in a new wood supply?  Confused

Stay tuned.. Winkgrin
