This is the 4th “Andy’s Art Box ” I have done. This one is for my daughter this Christmas. She likes the orange color of the Padauk wood so I am sure she will like it. The box is Black Walnut with Maple and Padauk splines. The lid is Curly Maple with a Padauk medalion. I sawed the medalion on the band saw and glued Maple strips in to give it a little different look.

That is a beautiful box. Love your choice of woods. They compliment each other very well.

Great job. I must say you did an amazing job on the finish it looks like it was dipped in glass!

Sorry I did not list the finish for this box, it is the same as my other 2 boxes posted on LJ. I started with 2 coats of spray can shellac, sanded smooth, then 2 coats of PPG Deltron 2000 automotive clear coat, sanded that smooth, then 2 more coats of PPG Deltron. I am going to try sanding sealer with more than 2 coats on my next box, trying to eliminate the 2nd two coats of PPG Deltron. Jack

Nice work. Using an automotive finish is an interesting touch… the gloss is very nice. Is it sprayed or brushed, wiped, etc? I used the same wood combo on one of my boxes: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/29928 . The strings in the medallion are unique and look good.
