This is the second of 2 Wenge’ and Padauk boxes I made this week. This one has a different texture and slightly different design. I really like this wood combination and definitely see me using it more in the upcoming future.
The finish is 10 coats of lacquer. I use the Deft Satin spray cans. Even the satin has a somewhat gloss and I an not a big fan of real glossy finishes..
The bottom inside is lined with a thick brown leather. My favorite is the alligator…but i do need to have a variety.
I am getting ready to re do part of my display shelving for my upcoming shows, so I have to spend time doing something other than making boxes…ugh.!
Time flies by so very quickly and before I know it the next shows will be here…and we are also taking a 10 day Montana vacation (also known as Shop Withdrawal) in a few weeks.
-- If retiring is having the time to be able to do what you enjoy then I have always been retired.
