Believe it or not , I got a commission to create a business card holder for an up and coming young executive in the Boston area . The only stipulation was that it had to be made from Purpleheart . Hopefully it will be acceptable upon delivery .
3/4T x 5.5W x 2.5D
Gold Plated bars from Rockler , Purpleheart from Woodcraft , Mini Router bit from Woodline USA (buy the whole set , they’re awesome ) Sanded to 320 , applied two coats of Minwax Natural Woodsheen and smoothed it out with some 0000 Copper Wool…..It will get a couple coats of Goddards Furniture Makers Wax before it leaves me .
Comments and critiques are most welcome .
It’s a little early but I’d like to wish a Happy Mothers Day to all of you Mothers out there : )
edit : I got the wax on it now….waiting for the sun to come up for some natural lighting because all I keep getting is flash reflections …LOL
-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
