1st real attempt at BSB, mothers day gift. Kids had fun at the costume jewelry store picking out it’s first “inhabitants”. Tremendous learnings on this one. I knew I disliked sanding, and this box confirmed it. broke down and purchased flocking tube ($6) at woodcraft. I wouldn’t attempt a good flocking job without it. I was pleased with how the micro-shredded suede turned out. Even more pleased with how the wife like it.
Anyone know the wood? I bought it for $1 at bin at rockler…it was called “project wood”. the top piece (of 4) had what appears to be striped spalting in it. There is a pen in the foreground to give you an idea of scale. This box was almost too big to do on my bandsaw and I had to “flip it over” to complete some cuts due to size. there are finger holes drilled in the back to get the drawers out. Wife preferred to go without pulls at this time.
Thanks for looking.
