I admit it, I’m a woodworking junkie. I read all I can, watch every show and keep them on my DVR to watch over and over again. I watched this project being made on the show Woodsmith. I decided to give it a try, I did change the plans a bit and I don’t normally make Boxes. I seem to be better a big projects for some reason.
I could have wiped the dust off before the pics man my eyes are getting bad!
First off, my hats off to you box makers; your talent is more appreciated as while making this I struggled a bit to get it perfect. The hinges drove me crazy, I thought I had them perfect, but NO!
I made this out of Wenge and Maple, Mappa Burl veneer and inlay banding. I like the Asian feel to this with the angled sides. I never really did any veneering so I figure I would give it a shot being I’m making Blondie a Bridal chest with alot of veneered panels.
I sprayed 5 coats with my Earlex 5500 with General Finish’s Enduro Var Semi Gloss. Sanded with 2000 then buffed out with 3M’s Finesse-it gel. I put red velvet in and I’m debating of making dividers doe it.
Thx for looking
