« Part 10: last steps before the spray booth Part 11 of Ambrosia-birdseye maple series Part 12: The finish is nearly done »

This is a quick one.
I sanded everything down to 220 on the orbital, then went over it with 220 by hand. I am still not sure about the handles so I will wait to see what it looks like once the first coat dries. After that it is just a sanding with 400 and recoat until I’m happy with it. Below I show the cup sprayer I use. Nothing fancy but it does a good job. You will also see a couple other boxes that will be gifts as well. I try to always do as many at the same time as possible. It takes the same amount of time to do 10 as it does to do 1.

Final Pictures will be up in a day or two.

Thank you for joining me and these wonderful pieces of wood on the long, but rewarding journey through my shop.

Until next time,
Joey

The blue epoxy has is a metallic color and has a running water feel to it. I hope I can capture it when I do the final photos.

The handles turned out well. Great great job. Whoever gets these will be simply thrilled.

They are for my wife and daughter. I am hoping they bring some great big smiles and maybe a tear or two.
