Another sculpted box, this one made for my older daughter. The box is made with radiatta pine from the big box store. I planed it to 1/2” thickness and then cut and assembled the box. The box has a divided lift-out tray, and the tray and box bottom are lined with felt. The tray is made with 1/4” radiatta pine and a 1/8” thick Baltic birch bottom. The sculpting of this box was again done with a random orbital sander, starting with 40x paper and working up to 220x. After that it was hand sanded up to 400x prior to stain. After staining I reverted to sanding with 220x paper again, and sanded to 600x before top coat. The top coat finish is three coats of wipe on poly and then two applications of paste wax. The box measures 11”w x 7”d x 4-1/2”h. The hinge for the lid is 1/8” brass rod.
Thanks for looking!
