Re: Harmonica box

Finished up shaping the latch, sanding, and putting on the first coat of tung oil. The first coat is always my favorite part of any project. The blue tape in the grids is to protect the surface from...

Re: Harmonica box

Re: Harmonica box

Re: Chopstick Master announced!

I expect that will be the go-to finish for me. I would like to make some with contrasting woods - maybe some ebony thrown in. Probably the best use of scraps I can think of.
