wall hanging oak box

ok im working on a wall hanging oak box with a panel door. the box and door are mitered. the box has walnut wedges in the miters. and the door has Jacobo or Jatoba, i don't remember what its called. but any ways its what the wedges on the door are. you know it may not even be jatoba/Jacobo, all i know is that its a deep rich red color.. really red....
and the hinges for the box are wooden hinges made from the same material the door wedges. and i would like any recommendations for a finish idea.


thanks in advance.

I would use a couple of coats of shellac buffed down with #0000 steel wool Then give it a waxing and buffing with a soft cloth. The end result will be a satiny finish that brings out the rich colors.

I went and bought myself a bunch of woodworking machines. What now?
