I am doing my first craft show and I needed some things to try and sell. Since I had a lot of scrape wood sitting around (and some firewood), I decided to make simple boxes that could serve are a ring box, candy dish or just a decorative box. I found an article on Fine woodworking from a book entitle basic box making. The design was simple and pleasing to the eye. So I cut up the firewood and starting mixing and matching. Most of the boxes are finished with shellac and General Finishes Arm-R-Seal or just Arm-A-Seal in both satin and a semi-gloss finish. There are about 5 coats of finish on each each. I cut up a foam board insert and hot glue some material for the bottoms.
Woods used: ash, spalted maple, cherry, ambrosia maple, walnut, padauk, bubinga, wenge
