Hey LJ’s

Made a video. Hope you find it interesting. Haven’t made one in awhile.

Thanks for checking it out!

Comments and critiques welcome.

I watched the video, Tom. A wonderful box it is. Card (cabinet) scrapers are wonderful things, when they’re nice and sharp. It works best if you hold it with both hands and flex a bend into it with your thumbs. But I’m sure you know that. I’ve also found that a box knife blade makes a very effective scraper, with a burr turned up on it. I’ve used them many times, when I just can’t seem to get a smooth surface with sandpaper on a piece I’m turning.

I’m a little unclear. Was there one box, or two? If one, why the epoxy inside, if you were just gonna cover it with felt?

One other thing: Play that funky music, White Boy.

Your video was interesting Tom and I saw a couple interesting things. Particularly the epoxy pour. I’ve been thinking of doing one soon on the entire box but still practicing. The day will come.

Mark,
Hoped it would be cleat that there are two customers and two boxes. The spaulted top has the faux leather and felt lining. The tree of life box has an epoxy coating as it’s function is to make soap. Got feedback from client. Works good!

Dave, Thanks for checking it out. Murphy and some great YouTube failures helped me to be patient. LOL! There are many different types of epoxy.
