I have some walnut and butternut that I am going to be using for some jewelry boxes.
I have never used butternut before and was wondering what your favorite finish for it is??
I normally use an amber shellac for walnut and it turns out nice.
For a contrast in woods if Butternut finishes out nice I thought I might use it on the drawer front of the walnut jewlery box.
I will be making two boxes and thought that I might do one with shellac and one with Danish oil finish. I should have scrap pieces, hey all my projects do, that I can put some different finishes on to try and get the best look.
It will be a simple design with lid, inside tray, and a single drawer below. My first jewelry box type project so nothing to fancy this time around.
