Talking Band saw box.

One that I made recently. I sold it at a craft show on mothers day weekend. It is one of Lois Keener Ventura's patterns, the Minnow. I made it of 3/4" walnut, 1/4" yellowheart, 1/4" purpleheart, and 3/4" red oak. The finish was gloss wipe on poly. I flocked the drawers with red. Not shown is a set of jewelry to match.

Great looking box Merle. I really like the idea of the pull made from a cross-wise section of the body.

I have tried glossy wipe on poly, but it always came out kind of spotty so I use a satin version. It looks like you have a really smooth glossy finish. If I may ask, do you seal or fill the wood beforehand?

Thanks for the comments. I enjoy making these and have made several templates from 1/8" baltic birch plywood for more boxes. I used to line the drawers with velvet, too much work. The Don Jer flocking works great and is easier. I suggest for styles like mine with different colored layers of wood that you paint the interior of the drawers first with the same color and then apply your colored adhesive. The "stripes" of the wood showed through a little.
Ron, I brushed and sanded the first two coats of the wipe on poly first then used the wipe on process.

Just lovely Merle, Do you mind if I ask what are the sizes of your box and what price range you were able to sell it for. Wipe on Poly...have not used that before...may have to look for it as I really like the way your box turned out. Thanks for sharing.
