This is a Bandsaw Box / Clock that I made for my wife. it made with Walnut, Purpleheart, Cherry and Poplar.
Drawers were flocked with green flocking. the finish used was an Wiping Varnish blend for the first couple of coats and the final coats were done with a 50/50 mix of Polyurethane and Mineral Spirits.

That’s a clever project and nicely finished. I suspect my wife secretly wishes I had your talent.

Really a nice project. I am trying to come up with a retirement gift for a coworker and really like the idea of a bandsawn clock box. Thanks for posting.
