Custom woodworking and design

Firstly! Don't forget to 'Like!' my Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/smartwoodcustoms.

Tonight I made a bit more progress. I fine sanded the box top to bottom and applied the stain. The stain went on fairly dark and I'm hoping it dries a bit lighter. Tomorrow when these two pieces are dry, I may decide to put on another coat, or sand it down a bit to get the stain a little lighter. Overall, I like how it came out. After that, I plan on wood-burning the map of Azeroth on the inside of the box doors. You may have not caught that factoid in the cinematic, but if you look while the box is closing, you can see that the map is indeed there!

The damn star.

This thing has been killing me, and I can already tell it's going to take me the most time to get right. I think I finally got the "triangles" the size I want. They still need some sanding/trimming, so they sit flush with the dome light, but otherwise I think it looks pretty damn good! After sanding them to fit flush, I'll need to continue making trim around the star and then sand/paint/wire/glue the thing to the box. Along with the other ornamental design. I really dug the way this came out.  Take a look at the pictures below as well.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to work a bit more on this tomorrow and post you some updates. I'll do my best! Thanks for stopping by!

Just when I thought I had an original idea I find someone already building the box lol. Seriously man this looks amazing. I am still in the drawing stage ATM.

Hey Arch! It's not my original idea either, the box was designed well before I took up the project. Just virtually!

Keep a log of your work, keep me posted, I'd love to check it out!

Just out of curiosity what dimensions did you decide to make your box?
