This design is very similar to the last box I created. My wife suggested that I make one like it but in a lighter wood. i value her input..so here it is. I do like the cherry and bloodwood combination even though it does not have the highly figured grain as other woods…but then again different is good especially since everyone has different tastes.
So far I have 4 of the seven coats of lacquer on it but I decided to take the photos after buffing it down with 0000 steel wool…hopefully less glare even though I use a satin finish. The photos did seem to come out wwith less glare by doing it this way…so maybe I have found a better way to photograph them.
