I built a few boxes to send to my sister. She will be adding pyrography and adding a finish. She asked that I not apply a finish on what I send her so I wiped them down with Mineral Spirits so you can see a bit of the grain. Yes, I’ll make some lids before I send them off to her.
Part of this exercise was to try some new techniques. I’m not in love with all of them. I thought the double-color spline would have looked better or more interesting. I’ll try other variations next time.
All boxes are from recycled Oak wood flooring. Splines are a mix of oak, mahogany, and cherry.
