Some more shadow boxes I did for work. Unlike the first ones that I posted, these I actually milled down from rough cut lumber. The first is actually the more recent of the two. This one is red oak from the lumber I bought for my bunk bed project I have yet to update on my blog. It’s an 11×14 box that I stained red mahogany. I actually prestained before glue up just to make sure everything was colored evenly since I set the glass during the glue up. The recipient loved shark fishing so a shark leader seemed appropriate. Finished with three coats of wipe on poly.

The other box was for a guy who pinned SSgt back in Oct. That box is 10×19 if I remember correctly. Made from walnut with maple splines (no pics of that). That was finished with a a couple coats of BLO and paste wax. The last pic is of the red oak I got for the beds I mentioned above. More of a wood gloat since I got roughly 132 bf for $50. That about $.38 a bf. TONS of work getting it all milled and unfortunately my dust collection is more of the manual type.

Thanks for looking.
