For my sisters birthday I made her this keepsake box. The box itself is made of mahogany and it’s lined with purple velvet (her favourite colour). It is finished with several coats of even parts polyurethane, boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits. I scroll sawed the names of her pets in the lid, then filled the voids with purple dyed two part epoxy. Now for the fun part, I attached neon wire to the back side of the lid then covered it with the velvet. Now when she turns it on the letters glow a brilliant purple (again, her favourite colour). This is my first project using two part epoxy, I have to say i’m very pleased with the result and she loved it!
