« Part 3: Carving is done, ready for finish Part 4 of Stationary box, chip carving series no next part

To complete this jewelry box for my wife, I applied one coat of sanding sealer, two coats of amber shellac mixed with medium brown and red mahogany dye, followed by two coats of satin lacquer. All materials were sprayed on using an airbrush. I made two trays and lined the box and trays with red velvet.

If Shelly loves it, what more is there to be said?

Great job. Finishing is always my biggest chip carving challenge.
