Unfortunately, I do not know the young ladies so didn't know if they would like their names out there in regards to my buddy (not that they would see this but who knows). Especially if they don't know about each other.
Wow, that brings back memories of my own dumb younger days.
The first box is semi gloss poly. I wanted something a little maintenance free due to the description of the young woman.
The second box is tung oil with wax buffed on. A little warmer finish that I believe gives it a softer look.
The wood grain is of course the star in both projects.
Though I have to say it can be challenging to make patterns for buddies without them actually knowing what they want. Started with the first image and finally ended up with the final image...6 iterations later.
He did buy me a case of beer and some awesome steaks so all is copacetic.
The offset was a design decision as an attempt to get additional shadow lines since it is such a simple design. Normally I would cut line grooves or add hardwood accents but he wanted really simple boxes.
