« Part 2: mechanism, woodburning and handle Part 3 of Pochade Box in progress series no next part

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view.

I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane.

Great looking very nicely done. I especially liked the slots idea for wet canvases.
