This is a footstool made of Tassie Blackwood and Surian for the express purpose of showing off the embroidery which I have mounted in the top frame.
The finish is Hard Burnished Wattyl Scandinavian Oil for the box and Shellack for the Red Cedar (Surian) top. Shellac shows Cedar off much better than straight oil. The tray and inside rails are made from beautifully figured QLD Maple.

The stool is 370×370 x 190mm. The legs are 45mm tall (below the box base) and are attached to the base with screws and Epoxy glue.

Nice job on he box Rob. The shellac did make a great finish.

beautiful,What a lovely way to show off needlework. Can the needlework be taken out for cleaning. Would also look charming as the top of a jewelery box

Hi Nezzer, Yes the embroidery can be removed. There is a Burgundy coloured panel to replace it. This can be seen in pics 3 and 4.
