I drew my brother for our Christmas gift exchange this year and decided to make him a watch box. It is made out of pine and finished with amber shellac and paste wax. This was the first time I have tried this finish and also the first time I was able to use my new (to me) Record 43 plow plane. I was super happy with the results of both.

Think that Box Deserves a Rolex! Your Workmanship has improved immensely!
Should fill it with Wood shavings as packing.
