Good job. I like the red dye on oak. I had not thought of that.

Very nice job. And the dye got that oak redder than I would have thought possible. What dye did you use?

Mark, beautiful work. I’ve made two band saw hearts. Challenging project with a lot of hand sanding. The color is fantastic.

It is truly an appealing band saw box! Very impressive and that is a stunner!

Very pretty and attractive box! Like the heart shape and the red dye specially the shiny finish.
