Not believing in the crawl-walk-run philosophy I tackled this wedding present for my sister as my second project. I figured that if a big box was easy (file cabinet was my first project) then a small box should be REALLY easy. Yeah, not so much… Good thing I started out several months prior to the wedding so I finally got it finished. It was a good experience going from the rough sketch to the finished product but the steps in the middle were sometimes trying. The waterbased polycrylic finish just gave me fits and had to be sanded off three different times. In the end she cried and the box now a conversation piece that sits in their entry hallway as furniture. Made of birdseye maple and ebony.
-- Mistake? No, that's just an unexpected design opportunity....
