One more box for the upcoming show in Pensacola. This one is made with some of my salvaged oak from 8 years ago during the big flood.
I really like oak as much of it in my pile has some nice grain configurations. Quarter sawn and rift sawn oak has a lot of beauty in it.
I realize some woodworkers do not like oak…and I would imagine that has to do with the fact that much of the oak found in lumberyards is rather plain grained.
This box has a Boiled Linseed oil finish and I have not yet decided if I will seal it with lacquer. I have time to decide since it needs additional time to set up prior to any other sealer.
The bottom is lined with a reddish brown leather. I took a couple of interior photos but they came out too dark so I did not use them.
