Since I’ve just started to equip my shop and I love accessories made out of wood, I decided to make a container in which I can store screws, nails, and so on.
It’s made out of a single piece of steamed beech. Each box is 3” x 5” and 1” thick and free-hand routed to ¾” depth.
It has no finish on it. Its only sanded – first 120 P then came the trick. For end grain I used a polyethylene polishing brush fixed to a power drill. It has made the end grain darker, a bit shinier and a kind of aged.
-- What are those few hours of mine compared to those decades Mother Nature has put in it!
