Grandma turned 100 the other day. She’s amazing and wonderful. Her Dad used to make wooden boxes a lot.
Decided to urethane this one. Had forgotten how much I hate the stuff. Overall it’s not bad. I’m fixated on the imperfections, of course, but overall happy enough. Inside is danish oil finish with a velvet pillow I sewed. The word inlays, especially with curly font, are a huge pain in the arse. Bloodwood inlay in Curly Maple.
