This is a sculpted box made of cedar with a flaming box elder inlaid heart. Thanks for taking a look.

Wow Joey, Who knew cedar could look that good? The box elder is a perfect complement. What did you finish that with?

You’ve been MIA but glad to see you back.

I knew you were gonna say that! Polyacrylic gloss NEVER looks like that for me.

I spray it on with a gravity fed sprayer at about 50lbs of pressure.

AhHA, I haven’t tried spraying with my sprayer! My set up does work great with Spar so I’ll try the Polyacrylic. Thanks.

Turned out beautiful and as I was getting into woodworking 4 years ago, my mentor told me then…..”your finish is 75% of your project. If you screw up the finish, you screw up the project.” You, my friend, did a GREAT finish on this!

Love the way you tied it together with the cedar sap wood and the white of the box elder.
