Music Box 5
Well I am almost at the end of this project. This time I have dealt with a bit of prefinish and pinning the book together.
The resin cleared up very nicely.
With the resin dry I applied some gel stain and then BLO to the birds eye to try and pop the grain a bit. After that dried overnight I was troubled about just attaching the bottom panel with glue. I don’t think it would have held up over time. I had purchased a bit of Texas Ebony the last time I was at our local hardwood dealer. Pickens Hardwoods in Clinton Ms.
I made some small 1/8 inch dowels with the Ebony and was very pleased with the results. My hands are still black from the process. I show that a bit more in the video.
I want to thank two Lumberjock members for making this possible. JL7 aka Jeff and William. Jeff helped me with the birds eye maple and William helped me with the music box movements. Thanks guys.
I believe there to only be one more installment to this series and it will be over. As always thank you for your time and leave a comment or klick one of the social media buttons below. That helps get me higher page ranking.
Oh I have started another new thing, carving. Wish me luck.
