My self inflicted dilemma, I choose to use only woods that are grown in this state. It may be a gimmick, but it’s my gimmick. Anyway I don’t have access to a lot of the fancier woods to cut and use.so I have to try to make what I have interesting and appealing. For those of you that find some of my projects boring, I want to hear from you. Give me finishing suggestions. I know I need to improve my techniques on making and finishing my projects.
All three of these are solid Oak except the lid on the middle one. It is my wonder wood (still wondering what it is). My small “Palm” boxes have Danish oil Black Walnut stain. Many coats of polyurethane. The wonder wood sucks up poly like a sponge.
All comments are appreciated.
Thanks for looking
