Didn’t make it into the shop today, but wanted to post something positive to counteract the rest of my day, so I think this piece qualifies. This is my first watch box, built throughout most of this year as a prototype in poplar for the walnut boxes that followed. It actually turned out pretty awesome. Super tight miter joints, darn near perfect red oak splines, and some really nice needlework done by my subcontractor sewing expert @maryv911 in a blue satin on the pillows. The box is finished with @generalfinishes Arm-r-seal semigloss to enhance the natural tones of the poplar. Very happy with it all around and I’d guess I could call this my first real “fine woodworking” project. I kept the walnut box, so maybe I’ll put this on my etsy site.
