This box is the first in a series of textured and colored objects. The colored turned out to be a little brighter than I had planned. The box is approximately 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” x 4 1/2”.

Thanks for your feedback.
The process is as follows,
I first cut the sides and top to size. Next, I paint the surfaces. I cut the grooves on a router table; cut one groove, then rotate the piece 90 degrees and cut a second groove. Move the router fence and repeat. Careful measurements on the router table are important to get the proper texture. I feel the squares are too large for the texture I was after. I plan to redo the box with smaller squares. Maybe deeper, also.
As for the paint, I use Golden brand acrylics and let the paint dry a few days before routing (even though the paint feels dry in a few minutes). To avoid scratching the paint surface I use blue painters tape to protect the surface.
