A commission from a client who wanted some wooden box to store her cutlery.
she said she wanted something simple, and i did follow the advice, kinda of.
as i was looking at examples and did not found one that i like, so i decided to do something with two doors and add some decorations to it.
she was pleased with it, so i think i did well.

Nice work! I recently made a box with a similar top. It was fun to do something different.

the box is cedar, the handles are mahogany and the decorations some local wood we call “little bone” or huesito.
I usual finish all my projects with 3 types of sandpaper: 120, 220 and 360. then apply 2 coats of a sealer that i don’t know how you call it in English, but it uses thinner. for this one i use an spray can lacquer to do the last layer.
