This is my first post on LJ. I come across this site completely by accident, and sure glad I did. I am so inspired by Andy’s Art boxes I had to give it a try. Thanks to Andy’s tutorial I made this art box, (this is actually my practice box) which turned out better than the box I was actually building. The box is soft maple with paduck splines, the lid is black walnut with a paduck medallion and handle. The finish is PPG Deltron 2000 automotive clear coat use in my auto body shop $$$$ gulp gulp. but the results are worth the $$$$. Thanks again Andy for sharing.
