I sanded the boxes to 1200 G and applied a coat of Orange Oil to one to check the finish.
I used some more of the green scouring pad which I found out “everybody” uses !! and a flap disc on my Battery drill along with a 1/2 sheet sanding block to get all the areas tidied up.
Here is one with no finish
Then both as a comparasion
And now the one oiled
a second view, the lid was retreated as well to attempt to get the desired match
It does look nice but I personally do not like the result, It looks too “orangy” and hope the oil is absorbed enough to try some other finish.
What is the concensus of opinion?
