Big admirer of Darrell Peart… er, G&G carpentry. When asked by a Brother to “surprise me” for the retirement gift, I couldn’t pass up the chance to expand the skill set. Easily the most challenging, most fun, most frustrating project undertaken thus far. The Shadowbox is G&G inspired and probably the only idea not borrowed from other G&G fans/experts.
Wood is Mahogany, Ebony, and Cedar.
Finish is 10% Red Mahogany/15% Dark Walnut Danish Oil; 25% Varnish; 50% Mineral Spirits, many thin coats rubbed in, much waxing.
Sense of accomplishment is priceless. The risk to keep the blamed thing is overwhelming. My hat’s off to you, my fellow makers of sawdust, for the ideas, encouragement, and most- the fellowship.
