As I’m new to this hobby, about 5 months now, the professionals out there will definitely see my mistakes. But as this was my first big project, I don’t think it turned out too bad.

On this project I used solid oak and hardboard for the entire project. Finishing it with 4 coats of clear satin poly to bring out the natural color. I also added bits of sand mixed with the finish to the top of the boot horn and bottom of the feet. Additionally, I crafted removable dividers within the box for storage of cleaning materials.

Very good Job. But I quit shinning shoes many years ago.

Nice; if there are any mistakes, I can see them. I got a store-bought one when I started college in 1965 (now you know how old I am).

Would you consider building another one like that, and if so would you sell it and what would the price be ?

Hello
Did you happen to get a chance to think about whether you would make one of these for me ?

I’m not here to make money ,but if you are seriously dissatisfied in all the production bootshine boxes online, I wouldn’t mind helping you out. Shoot it gives me an excuse to fine tune my skills :)
