5” x 3 3/4”

I’ve been working towards a style that appeals to me for small boxes. This seems to be pretty close. I have gone through probably a dozen variations and it looks like this one is the winner. ha ha.

One thing I’ve come across that has really made things easier is a product called “Micro-Spun Towels”. I’ve been using it to apply the Shellac and Arm-R-Seal and it just rubs on with no problems. You can go back over it and smooth out the finish, its really nice. I got it at Rockler, it was 10 bucks for a pack of 5, 16” by 16”sheets.

Anyway, thanks for looking

The style looks great and so does the wood. Sounds like you are getting ready for a little production.

Thanks Drew. I do think along those lines, but no specific plan yet.

It’s a very nice box, Daniel.

Absolutely beautiful, great craftsmanship!
