My dad is a traditional wood worker, and he loves to make boxes from different, interesting woods. I decided to make him a box, using the glowforge, for Christmas. I didn’t have any exotic wood, so I just used a combo of cherry and walnut to make things interesting. This is the first thing like this that’s I’ve made, and I made a lot of mistakes along the way, but I think the final result is rather charming. It’s finished with polycrylic. Took lots of finishing and sanding and finishing and sanding, but it has a nice smooth texture now. I left the inside a bit rough so that you can see a bit of the process of building the box.
