My 1st project was more than just a pine box carrier.

This was my first wood working project. The design was my own and it got me wanting to do more.

I stained the little side panels with a half and half mixture of white oil base paint & dirty kerosine out of my dads parts washing machine.

I think it came out really nice. Love the brush and pencil holder. Now you are hooked.

Hi Emma and welcome to LumberJocks.

That’s a nice tote. I need to do some like that for all my gluing supplies (glues, paper towels, painter’s triangles, various craft brushes, popsicle sticks & discarded business cards for mixing epoxy on, rubber gloves, etc.), as they seem to all wander to the far corners of the shop on their own at any given time when I’m not in the shop. (sigh!)

I do have a question. I like the idea of using your dad’s dirty kerosine out of his parts washing machine for a finish. But is there any long term residue left on the treated wood surface that could weep back out over time and contaminate whatever it is set on? If not, I’ve got lots of old kerosine/grease from my wash station waiting to be sent to the recyclers. I do like the look of yours.

Thank you.

Staples were all covered up by my spectacular trim work.

I put 3 coat of urethane over my kerosine stain concoction and it dried real nicely.

OK urethane. That’s good to know. I’ll have to do some sample pieces from the scrap pile to try this out.

Thanks,

Dave

Most excellent. You thought this out well, grasshopper. Use and time will only add to the appreciation of your build. And I might add guide you through the build of the next Pine Box Carrier 2.0.
I know, I have built my share of such carriers and Iam still finding ways to improve.

Never the Master, always the Grasshopper is my motto.

Wait until I start feeling more at home and comfortable here. That’s when the fun is going to start. I’m a 5’ 5” Grizzly Adams tomboy with a hunting license and an internet connection… and a band saw.

...and toe socks

OK, you won me over with the toe socks. ;-)

I need to make myself a few of these toolboxes – I need to get organized in general!

Nicely done, and welcome to LJ! I’m still learning my way around the site myself. If this was your first project, I expect great things from you soon! Looking forward to the next project.

You appear to have determination. Just have patients as you work. Doing it right takes time. Every time I try to cut corners & hurry I screw something up. Causes noise pollution in the shop. I don’t throw things though, I work alone and I would just have to pick them up.

Good first project to get organized. Maybe I should do that.
