    silverware chest

    I managed to get this silverware chest done in time for my daughter's wedding. My dad is giving her the silverware that he and mom got for their wedding. Dad wanted a nice box for it as the silverware was in a cardboard box that was lined with felt. I had pm'ed Chuck about using his double ring design and he had agreed. I went to dad's yesterday and showed him the finished product. He was happy. I finished it with BLO and shellac. I then rubbed it out with the white pad and wax.

    That's beautiful, Rex. Guess I better put that on the to-do list. My silver doesn't even have the cardboard box. I've got an old paper bag that's rolled up.... It's a lovely gift.

    Thank you all. Also thanks to Chuck for straightening me out. My memory gets a little foggy sometimes. 4 days till the shindig. Still have to build something to carry/get all the table center pieces to the reception place.

    A beautiful gift with much sentimental value. It doesn't get better than that.
