Another one of my pieces of scrap bin oak that I made into a box and weatherizationized …I used my router to create the design then I sandblasted it and finished it off with an ammonia fuming…followed by 3 coats of lacquer.

Interesting look. Kind of antique looking. Great use of scrap. Hope sales go well. I need a design that lets me use 4 or 5 different pieces of scrap for a box! I have a lot of that.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

this one sure has that rustic charm, i like the routering you’re doing for design, boxes are always a wonderful place for keeping those treasures we come across in life, and this one will be a treasure box for some well deserving soul.

Tom…when the scrap bin starts getting too full it is time to start doing something. Besides, I paid for all those scraps when they were full boards, so I might as well get something out of them.

Robert…I know several people that use numerous different wood types in making a box and achieve some really beautiful looking results. It’s easy to get hung up using just one or two woods.

grizzman… I call it Cajun homemade rustic. I hope people like it enough to buy it…and they can call it whatever they want.

Nice! The look you get from sandblasting is very unique.

Jeff…The sandblasting works nice because it takes such a short time in comparison to the time it would take nature to do the same
