Another storage box, this time from ¼ inch poplar and Baltic birch ply for the top. Treated (this morning) with kakishibu, which darkens with exposure to sunlight. I’ll be documenting that separately.
These box (or corner) clamps from Woodpecker’s are a pain to store. They’re much less useful if you can’t find all four, and they tend to slide off a shelf if you’re not careful. So into a box they go!
And after sanding lightly with 220, applying another coat of the kakishibu, then applying a coat of tung oil, it looks like this:
To compare, here’s the bottom of the box which is the same poplar as the sides, with the same sanding and tung oil.
I think I’m liking the kakishibu, though I need to try it on other woods and also need to get it out in the sunshine.
