A guy had these 2 postal box doors which belonged to his grandparents and parents and asked if I would make something with them. He wanted Jatoba wood, splined miters,dowels, and a secret compartment. I learned a lot building this: I didn’t charge near enough! (44 hours of time), how to dowel miters, and the value of sanding to 600 grit. Thanks to all my LJ friends who supplied advice. Finished with 4 coats well rubbed BLO. Will do Renissance wax in a few days as it gives a really nice feel. All criticisms are welcomed.
