After seeing so many awesome boxes on LJ, I decided it was time to make one….well, three actually. This and two other posts will show them all…that I made at the same time. This one is oak with padauk top and keys. The bottom is covered with felt. It is about 3×4.75×7.5, is sanded to 400 and finished with 2 coats of mineral oil / beeswax in a 4:1 ratio…my new favorite. I learned a lot but clearly need to get better. This was my first use of padauk. I should say I think that is the species…it was in a scrap box and not labeled…please feel free to confirm or correct my thinking. The dust from that wood seems to stain everything it touches. I gave this one to a friend upon her leaving our place of employment. Thanks to all who post such great boxes so that I may be inspired and learn.
