My sister always accuses me of trying to incorporate too many styles into my projects… maybe she’s right.
The design is basically finished, and I say basically because there’s always tweaks and adjustments to be made along the way. I will get a chance to start the project this weekend and just to tell you a little bit about it… I want the finish to have a high gloss, clear coat, and I want to inlay it with a few cherry blossoms on the top lid. I don’t think I’m up for the idea of dyeing the wood to make it pink, I’m a naturalist like that ;). It will be my first attempt at inlay and it will be my first attempt at putting something together that requires more than some glue and a firm clamp.
As with most of my projects, it will be done mostly by hand (simply because I can’t afford power tools at the moment), I’m a complete amateur at woodworking, so any suggestions for wood-type to be used, jointing, inlay and finishing will be most welcome and highly highly appreciated :)
