Small Gift boxes continued-Varnishing

Hi Everyone,

Well, it's been a long hot week here and we're on the close of this project. I've taken the boxes inside and I'm applying a quick drying polyurethane to them.

Here's a photograph:

I gave all the boxes a light stain and I'm glad I did. I think the colors are more vibrant than they were. Also the much scorned cedar of Lebanon and the hackberry boxes look much better and rather than hiding the grain patterns, it enhanced them.

I'm going to let these dry and then apply a second coat and then let them dry for 24 hours or until the surface is hardened and cured. Then I'll buff them on the lathe and they'll be done at that point.

So one more posting for this.
