This box was made for some friends who just had a baby. I liked the idea of doing something with three, since now their family is three.
This is walnut, which I haven’t used before. Durnik recommended it and I can see why. It was easy to work with and it finished wonderfully. I used natural stain and then 50/50 poly/lacquer thinner. The drawers are flocked in a wine color.
My only disappointment is how the drawers open. They don’t stay open very well – so next time, I think I’ll make the piece a bit deeper. Perhaps one more thickness of wood so the drawers have some more depth.
Thanks for taking a look.
