I finally have time to post my Mother’s Day project. My mom is redoing her guest bathroom with a beach theme. I found some clip art of a tropical fish and colored it with markers. I cut the box out of proofgrade maple, but decided it was to light and wanted more contrast with the white tile. Rather than sand of the finish I used some dark gel stain. Then finished it off with some clear poly spray. I wanted to add a design element on the side and added a wave pattern that I made using the zig zag filter in illustrator and since I hate to wait I cut instead of engraving. Which gave the idea to get some ocean themed potpourri (which totally is a thing).

I am very happy with the results.
