Made a larger version of a box I’ve done before – this time with 4 drawers using walnut, maple & cherry. About 10” tall, 7” across at top & 5” deep. Was happy that I was able to get 3 segments in the top drawer, the 2 in second drawer. Finished with 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal.
One box for my wife & 2 for my sisters in law (I married into a great, although sometimes nutty, family) I’ll take the extra box to the gallery & see if they want to carry it.
Interesting thing, after completing my sanding (Oh joy) I decided to try & darken the cherry some before finishing, so exposed to about 14 hours of direct sun here in Western NC. Worked great to get some quick color… but surprise – evidently the wood was not all the same moisture content so I had some very small “ridges” where the different woods were glued together. Nothing severe & hand sanded back out just fine without messing up the darker cherry.
Thanks for looking – and to those of you that have been an inspiration to me & provided your encouragement – thank you… you do know who you are!l
Happy holiday weekend – please remember the true meaning of Memorial Day – we owe so much to all that are of have served, but must always remember & never forget those that gave the ultimate sacrifice.
