Well, it’s getting harder and harder to post my modest boxes here with some of the things I’ve seen lately, but I shall attempt to put my feelings of inadequacy aside and carry on. :-)
Once again, this was made from leftovers around the shop. It is walnut with poplar trim. I would have preferred cherry, but, alas, none was to be found in the scrap bin. I’m calling it a man’s jewelry box because it is on the smaller side, and the lines ares somewhat masculine. The round bins in the sliding tray were designed to be the right size for tie tacks and cufflinks. Finish is water-based poly. I usually put on a couple of coats, sand to 150, then about 3 more coats, sanded to 400 in between.
