This is a cherry wood box I built for my coworker. Her Husky dog passed away and I wanted to build her something where she could store some keepsakes from her dog. I am not good at drawing, but I have always liked Native American art. She loved it. The figure is drawn on by a Sharpie Pen and coated with tung oil. There was minor bleeding from the sharpie ink and tung oil. I need to find a better way of painting on my designs.
The cherry I came across during my travels in Pennsylvania. A sawyer sold me a whole pile of cracked and warped boards for twenty bucks. There was a lot of usable materials in that defective pile for boxes and small chests.
