I’m adding another box to my collection of old fence post boxes. I don’t know why I’m drawn to these old posts, but when I find them I just want to cut into them and make something new. On this one I was surprised to see that it was redwood , I don’t know why redwood in this area makes sense it’s rot and insect resent. I guess because it costs so much now. On this I was trying to show the colors of the stuff on the exterior of the post and the beauty of the aged redwood interior. I think I might have made the side towers a little to tall .
The keys are maple and redwood
The handle is maple and Manzanita root
On the bottom is a stone to cover a knot hole
The finish is satin spray Deft that I tried because Andy says he likes it. I used Deft 20+ yrs. ago. This stuff in a can is great it goes on great and dries fast. I’m now a fan.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
