Just playing around with boxes again. The small one (posted previously) is 16” high, the larger one is 28” high. I think I’m addicted to boxes of any style. Did I say that?.............

Well done.
I have yet to make some drawers, and I am really looking forward to it.
I am in the process of making a finger joint jig for the table saw.
I hope they turn out as nice as yours.

Kevin, primitive style is my favorite. It is a style that is very forgiving. I only use a stain, no top coat.

I really like the look of that. What stain? I’ve used a Golden Oak stain that I’ve mixed a little roofing tar with, and it gave this same looking finish. I really like the way it darkens the grain. very nice

Roger, the small box is Minwax Golden Oak (on old barnwood) and the large one is Minwax Provincial on old pine.

thnx for the info. it’s funny because just the other day, I almost picked up a can of that Provincial by Minwax. I wound up with an Minwax Early American for a footstool I’ve been workin on, on-n-off for too long now. It’s bout time I “git-er-done” I like the hue the Early American is giving this Maple I used for it. I’ll get pics on here if/when I finally get it done.

Looks great! How long do you let the stain cure before handling or is that an issue?

I usually let the stain cure for about 8 hours, that is just my personal preference.
