Cherry bandsaw box which is part of a teardrop series that I’m working on. I just love cherry. Especially after you get all the layers of finish on it and see all the blacks, reds, yellows and oranges that come out. A pleasure to work with also.

Very pretty. What finish did you use? I just have used cherry for a project for the first time recently. Agree that it is pretty easy to work with.

Nice work. I like the design of letting the crisp edge of the drawer stick out the edge of th ebox.

I stained it with Minwax gunmetal then two coats of shellac and two coats of lacquer.

What a wonderful design. Really eye catching, elegant. And with that open corner, which I think really makes the piece, you don’t even have to try to hide the entry cut. A theme you seem to have in your other projects I noticed.
Keep it up.
