I turned these two boxes from Frog Blanks multicolor laminate. It turns nicely and is pre stabilized.

This is the first that I have heard of Frog Blanks.

There looks to be a very uniformly deep change in color from the outside in. Is that because of your finish or did you dye it?

When using colored epoxy, a coating with OSMO and maybe Oldie's or Rubio will bring out the colors better than an oil finish.

Those are very nice. Thanks for taking the time for pics before applying the oil.

What is the rough outside diameter of those?

Are you trying for a suction fit for the tops?

Actually I didn’t oil these at all.
After seeing the first ones oiled and thinking about it for a week I decided not to oil any more. I even roughed up the surface instead of polishing them.

The tops are a little tighter than suction fit. I don’t want the lid coming off in a pocket or purse. So they require a good hard twist to remove. I think the material is strong enough to withstand the action over time.
