The Pinnacle Box is a unique sculpted box that was quite a challenge to make. There is a three dimensional carving on each face, even the bottom. Each wooden box has a hidden/secret compartment located under the lid and is held in place with rare earth magnets. I use a lacquer finish for this box, then I polish it with steel wool and paste wax for the ultimate sheen and durability.
If using this box for an urn, it will hold the ashes of up to a 68 pound loved one.

Dimensions (external): 6” cube
Dimensions (internal): 4.5” by 4.5" by 3.375" deep, plus the secret compartment; 68 cu-in.

The finish I use is a CAB acrylic lacquer from Sherwin Williams with the vinyl sealer base coat. I often use paste wax with steel wool to make the piece feel better to the touch and to bring out the sheen.
Very little care if any is necessary aside from removing dust occasionally. You can use an air canister if you like. You may also use any wax type polish to bring out the sheen. If alcohol or a chemical gets on the piece, wipe off immediately. Letting a chemical sit will ruin the finish.
The leather lining I use is a synthetic suede called Ultrasuede. It can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Custom orders are accepted based on wood type only, unless a large quantity is desired. My boxes are all made in batches and are not conducive to size changes. I can do monograms as seen in this listing:
