    Keepsake box

    Decided to do some flatwork for a change. This is a box I made for my sons neighbor. He asked if I could make a box, something simple, for his girlfriend. I had this maple that a friend gave me lying around the shop so I decided to use it. I think if my friend knew the wood would clean up this good he wouldn’t have gotten rid of it. I sanded it to 600 and applied 3 coats of tung oil and then buffed it out with tripoli, white diamond and then carnauba wax. He was verry pleased with it.

    As well he should be...beautiful work! I've got some tiger maple left from a humidor project that I've been saving, but this gives me some inspiration.

    Thanks,

    Yeah, it's pretty easy to believe he was pleased with the box. That's beautiful wood, and the box shows it off very nicely. Great job, Bobby.

    Wow, I know I'd be kicking myself if I'd getten rid of wood like that. Beautiful box and you did the wood proud.
