This is a fairly simple Keep sake \ memory box for my 1 year old son. Again at my wife’s request.

It is made with box joints (hand cut) and is Black Walnut with an amber Shellac finish

Molan, nice work. I like the neat exterior and dovetails. Why no finish on the inside? The engraving work is neatly done too.

Very nice, have you tried the French Polish from Lee Valley, amazing stuff!

Nice job there molan.

But watch what you sign up for… next you’ll be expected to turn your humidor into a sewing basket.

I have never done finish on the inside of a box or chest. Not really sure why though

No, my goto is mainly Shellac, I will take a look at it though.

Have your say...
