It’s been a ridiculously busy year. (wifee got a new hip) Hoping to get more time in the shop next year. This is a box a brother-in-law requested for the ashes of his pet dog. I had this Cherry board left over from the wedding box I made earlier this year. I want to give a shout-out to Steve Ramsey for his easy to follow “how-to” lidded box videos. Here’s his link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osOXOZIVOv8. The Cherry board is 35+ years old, and the splines are Ash. I cut splines from Walnut and Ash to see which ones I liked better for the contrasting look that I really like. The paw print inside the heart is transferred from a laser jet printer picture by using a burning tool. Finished with one coat of Boiled Linseed Oil, then topcoated with 4 coats of MinWax highgloss poly. He should receive it in tomorrows mail out there in Nebraska. Anyhoo, first, thanks for checkin in. and as always, any comments, good/bad/ugly will be appreciated.
