Copper Top Box

This is a High School graduation gift for my brother. Body of the box is cherry, keys are walnut as is the lid lining. The top panel is copper fumed with ammonia. The finish is wipe on poly followed by 100 minutes in a tanning bed. Yes, I just typed that. I was going to make a liner with dividers to go in it but I realized I don’t have a clue what he might put in it, so I’ll just put a gift card redeemable for whatever shape and size divider he might want.

Nice work…did you put the ammonia in a cup and then bagged the copper with the ammonia? Or what?

Fumed copper? How do you do that? It looks so interesting.

This was rock salt on the copper and suspended above ammonia in a sealed container. I really didn’t leave it long enough as I tend to get impatient.
