« Part 3: Worst carving ever and jigs are good. Part 4 of Viking Chest series no next part

Pine box is done, finished with amber shellac and wax. I have the wood picked out for the oak chest and should be starting that this weekend.

That looks good and its finished.
The pine will turn a nice amber colour in a while and get that nice patina that gets better and better .
I like the carved symbol that looks cool and certainly adds to the box .
I love pine and added my symbol in Japanese to all my posts because that is just such a nice way to make a mark on your work . symbol for pine

Looks great Rick. I think you started something with this tree language. I may have to look it up again and add my DD to my signature.

Thanks everyone. There probably won’t be any or many updates on the upcoming oak version until it’s done because it will appear as a how-to article on someone else’s website but I’ll post another blog entry with a link to that article when it’s done.
