I was bored last weekend, and since I’m still struggling to decide what kind of woods to use for the monster truck Jeeps I’m making for my nephews I thought I’d throw something easy together in the meantime.
Another box from the Strother Purdy book I used for my previous jewelry box. Unfortunately, one of the dimensions in the plans was incorrect and I had to improvise.
A colleague of mine had a nice board of Butternut he kindly donated, along with some Walnut too =). This box used half the Butternut with little waste. I love this stuff! Since I don’t have a bandsaw yet I had to resaw the Butternut on my table saw, with good results.
It’s sanded up to 400 grit, with two coats of double boiled linseed oil, and one coat of paste finishing wax. It feels sooo nice, and the grain is so beautiful.
