This box is made from three pieces of Red Oak glued together. I stained it Red Mahogany and gave it a satin finish.
I had never put a dark stain on Red Oak before. I used to fine of a sandpaper, and so it closed off some of the pores. Next time no finer than 220 before staining.
I couldn’t believe how easy and fun it was to make. I am anxious for some more difficult challenges.
