This was supposed to be a twin to the first one and they looked good in the unfinished state and were made from the same wood and the lids were cut from the same slab that I had laminated .
The big and unpleasant surprise came when I looked at this one the morning after I had applied the first coat of finish . The lids had turned almost black and a sanding and wash did not improve it by much so the choices I had were to replace the lids but wood with a matching grain and colour was nowhere to be found so I thought I put it aside for a bit and the answer will come and a couple of days ago I decided to carve the lids meaning adding some texture and refinished the lids , I like the result .
I still can’t explain what made the difference as both boxes were finished using the same process .
Well it’s done and no more tears were shed and life is good .
