I am not a fan of lift-top boxes…but I had a request from my wife to make a lift top box…so here it is. Photos are kinda dark because I am experimenting with different backgrounds and this is the first.
I am just starting to make the lift out trays and will have photos of them when complete…along with some different background colors.
The wood is Padauk and is definitely orange when cut and worked. I felt like i was carving pumpkins because of the color. I know it will darken a bit when exposed to light and air because the boards were a much deeper red before I started butchering them. Anyway, I gave them a coat of boiled lindseed oil to help and then a few coats of lacquer.
