Just a few simple chest that i made out of laminated pine. Please forgive the staining as im working on the blotchiness of pine and other such woods. With the limited material available sometimes you have to color.

What blotchiness I don’t see anything except a really nice piece of furniture (actually many pieces). What did you use to cut the davetails with.

Nice job.

Great looking boxes. If you are concerned about blotches I highly recommend varathane wood conditioner. I have heard shellac works well too although I’ve never tried it. As previously mentioned though from the pictures the boxes look great with no obvious blotchiness.

Have your say...
