« Part 3: Half scale Bombe # 4 Part 4 of Half scale Bombe Jewelry Box series Part 5: Final Post »

Finally some color. I went with a custom mix of minwax english chestnut,red chestnut, and a little varathane cabernet on the carcass. The draws are transtint honey maple. I’ll finish it up with multiple coats of minwax antique oil finish. I guess for the first experience the feet aren’t that bad.

You did a beautiful job on this. I especially like the shape and the contrasting colors. One question though: how do you open the drawers?
