A simple little jewelry box for my bride.
 

 

 
3/8” re-sawn cherry, finished with red wine and shellac.

That’s a nice little box, Ron. I hadn’t heard of red wine finish before, but it sure looks like it worked well. How does it hold up over time?

Thanks, Dave. I used red wine as the dye for Rev. Caroline’s Arts and Crafts Style Prie Dieu last year. I guess it holds up well … the Prie Dieu still looks good. I’m sure the glazing and shellac have a lot to with that, as well. The wine was 50% reduction applied while still warm/hot.

Thanks, Ralbuck. The finish is a 50% red wine reduction applied while still warm/hot followed by a coat or two of clear shellac.

Nice jewelry box, but simple is the wrong descriptive word.
