The outside of the box has been polished with tung oil and beeswax for a long lasting natural finish that is pleasant to the touch, interior is also finished with tung oil to seal the wood but left with slightly more rough texture to prevent card sticking.

This piece has been "signed" with C.M. Galdre's makers mark, the moon over the mountain.
Teak is considered the gold standard for wood rot resistance. Its oily nature discourages decay and enhances its resistance to wood boring insects. Once sealed the wood takes on a nice smooth finish like any other hardwood.
