This is a small bandsaw box I completed for some friends in North Dakota. I sure hope they enjoy it.

Gary, this is a really nice box. It has a nice design and look to it. I have been meaning to try one of these but have never been able to find the time to work it in as projects like this tend to get bumped by others that my wife thinks are more important. :)
What type of wood is it and what kind of finish did you put on the box.

Nice! What kind of wood is that?

Appreciate all the compliments. The wood is some popular I rescued from the firewood pile. I have been using the new wave sanding discs and Beall polishing buffs on my carved bowls. I decided to try that on this box and was pleased with the finish. I want to try some Waterlox glossy on my next project. Does anyone have experience with that? Problem with that is that you don’t use much of it at a time on small projects and it gels with air in the container. I bought one of those collapsible containers. Does anyone use those? Do they work? Again. appreciate the feedback. I am just starting out in woodwork and all the help/training I get I get from LbJs. Sure proud I found this site.

Gary, I have never tried a collapsible container but one of the things I do with varnishes to help keep them from gelling is to transfer them to a smaller container, such as a mason jar once I open the can in order to minimize the air space over the finish. Bloxygen is a product that has been designed to help prevent this as well.
