This box is made of walnut, maple, and cherry with purpleheart drawer pull and finished with pure tung oil. The drawer interior is finished with blue flock. I used a pattern from Lois Ventura “Sculpted Bandsaw Boxes.” I completed this box in June as a wedding gift for my new daughter-in-law so had to wait until after the wedding to post the pictures.

Stunning! I have got to try making a bandsawn box sometime! Did you use the ‘loose’ flocking that you spray on?

Dan, Yes I used “loose” flock but I wouldn’t necessary describe it as spray on. I first coat the drawer with glue the same color as the flock, and use a cardboard flock applicator. The applicator is two tubes one fits inside the other and one has a small hole in the bottom of it. It’s more like gently puffing the flock into the drawer. :-) The flock will stick to the glued area. I apply the flock pretty heavy, let it dry overnight, and then reclaim the access flock the next day. It gives a real nice even coat of flock with no seams. A helpful hint, don’t move the item after flocking until the glue is completely dry or you could knock the flock out of the glue resulting in bare spots.
