A customer requested that I make a container to house a vase with followers to be placed on a shelf of a mausoleum. The box I made is 6 ¾”w x 6 ¾”d x 12 ¾”h and made from mahogany and maple the finish is one coat of Minwax Tung oil and 15 coats Minwax Paste Finishing Wax. The box has a window to hold 4” x 6” photo that is held in place by two springs made from Padauk. I also had the box laser engraved.
The mausoleum is covered but the ends are open and therefore the box will see some outdoor weather.
