Here’s my second attempt at box making this time trying to take into account the grain running all the way around the box per Alans’ suggestion from my first box.
Materials: Brazilian cherry, Paduak, Maple and Poplar
Finish: Cabots spray poly (yes I took the easy way out this time)
Size: 4.25”H x 12”W x 6.125”D
Things I wished had been better was the contrast in color between the Paduak and Brazilian cherry—in hindsight I think a small highlight strip of maple or something very light would have been good
Things I did like was the top—I found the Poplar at Lowes (had to get cheap due to being unemployed for the past 6 months) the grain jumped out at me even in the rack and even more so when I hit it with the poly
As always I look forward to comments/criticism from everyone
BTW whoever said box building was easy needs to rethink that!!!
