Second Box Elder coin box for Grandson. I posted an earlier feed and explained how I made the original box. I will not repeat the steps only the changes I made in this box. I used an Arizona Quarter year 2008 which is the year my Grandson was born. That year included a Arizona State Quarter so I chose it because that is where his Mommwa and poppaw go in the winter months. The fourth picture of the group I tried to get a close up to show how much Red color Triple EEE and Shelawax, after sanding from 60 grit to 600 grit paper. This second box like the first was turned and the lid completed prior to the after thought of inserting the coin. I used the same technique on this lid as the other posting and managed to insert the lid back into the chuck with cover not to damage the finish and make sure it turned even. There is a couple little small marks in the lid from the chuck but the Grandson won’t care I am sure.
