Finished Dovetailed Tray

I posted a project on here awhile ago about a Tea Tray with hand cut dovetails. Well, this project, as did the last one, didn't get finished until just the other day. As I noted in this project's original post, It is made from cherry and features my first hand cut dovetails. Here's a couple of pics of the finished project.

 It was finished with some Minwax stain and polyurethane. Some minor blotching did occur, which could have been fixed if I had conditioned the wood beforehand, but, we live and learn!

The bottom is made out of a scrap of luan flooring, but the color turned out great and it finished nice, so who cares!

                                          Have a nice day, and thanks for reading my post!

Bandsawn Box

Here's a project that I finished awhile ago, but never got around to putting a finish on. So a couple days ago I finally got it finished.

It's my first actual bandsawn box (the practice one I showed on here doesn't count) and I think it turned out pretty nice.  It's made out of African Mahogany and finished with Minwax Semi Gloss Polyurethane.
Here's some pics.

                                   So that's it! Hope you enjoyed it, cause I enjoyed making it!
