I finished this box today. Started at daybreak this morning and worked until just after nightfall….then I started applying the lacquer.
This is made from one of the mystery woods I dug out from my wood stash during a major cleanup a while back.
Out of sight…out of mind…
Have you ever bought a piece of wood that is not your everyday wood and later on completely forgot what it was?
I call it Porcupine Wood because it is full of sharp quills … that took a considerable bit of sanding to smooth out.
The wood was sandblasted and scrubbed with a wire brush to get the texture. Lots of splinters…I am really glad I have some good tweezers handy
The lift is one of my favorites…Padauk.
