So this box started as a jewelry box for my daughter. It loosely follows a woodsmith plan. I changed a few things along the way, and after applying the finish decided it was only good enough to be called “practice”. I attempted to used a little dye to pop the grain, and I guess it worked a little, but in doing so, I uncovered multiple blemishes in the maple that were not visible prior to applying finish. I’m a little dissapointed, but my daughter thinks it’s great…..she already took colored pencils to the bottom and underside of the lid (parts that remained unfinished) and it now houses all her colored pencils and 2 braclets…...anyway, gonna give it another shot, though this time I’m going to go with a more basic design and use some found wood I came across a year or so ago…..
Thanks for lookin’,
