Here is the last one of three new box project posts that I added today. It is a cherry receipe box with double compartments on the inside. I made the box deep enough inside so that it could accomodate tabbed index separator cards which I forgot to consider in a previous box I made like this.
As you can tell, I’m into making boxes as of late. If it wasn’t fun, I guess I wouldn’t be doing it. This box was made from some of the wood I was able to get at an estate tag sale a few weeks ago as I reported in one of the other box posts that I made today. Good looking wood and very easy to work with. I put two coats of Watco Danish Oil on the box and after 72 hours, I began adding the first of three coats of Minwax Hand Rubbed Poly. I love this method of finishng boxes!
The box was also added to my Etsy Store.
