I really like both of them and I see why your sweetie wants to keep these. How are these finished?

Andy, These 2 and almost all of my boxes have 1 coat of blo and then rattle can laquer. Or if I have it I use Laquer sand and seal first then 3 or 4 coats of laquer, I really like to sand in blo with 3m open graded pads, seems to fill in low spots and gives an old pantina to wood. Thanks for kind words, Bob.

Bob, I’ve heard about filling grain with BLO and sanding but not tried it. What grit pad and then do you sand more/finer after the BLO has dried?

Andy, I use the green 3M pads, I am not home now and don’t know grit. But I do one side of box at a time and use the pad and blo as a lubercant. Then I wipe down the whole box with dry rag and let it sit for a day or two. Then I resand with 3M pad, clean and laquer it. Hope this helps, I am sure there are lots of ways to do this. Bob

Thanks Bob, I have those green pads. Does sanding with these plus the BLO do much to fill the grain on wood like walnut, oak, jatoba, etc? By the way, you know I liked those hinges!
