Project Information

I made this box out of purple heart and birch for my grand daughters 7th birthday. This is my first bandsaw box. The finish is 3 coats of shellac and two coats of renaissance wax. The best part of making this box was the reaction of my Grand Princess when she opened her presen.

I have never tried anything like that. Was it done from a pattern or did you do it on your own? I definitely like it and would like to try it. And, your Grand looks like she really enjoys it too.
