Breadbox Project

Published on by Mike  (Leave a comment)

As mentioned in my previous post, I am working on a breadbox for my wife.  I will make more updates as it nears completion.  Today I finished the sanding, and decided to go ahead and start putting the finish on the box even though I haven’t started the door yet.  The wood is maple that has some ambrosia figure to it.  I got a pretty good deal on it from as he was trying to close out his remaining stock, and the figure was a bit limited.  I am seriously thinking about making a trip back to get a little bit of walnut, as I am think the contrast in wood will really make the whole project pop out.  I will post more pictures directly to the blog at some point.  However, I am posting progress pictures via twitter.  I have setup a twitpic event gallery just for the bread box.  Click here to check it out!!
