The Cabinet Maker at School… Part 8

IMG_3580

The School Box has been sitting on top of a chest in our lounge for the past week, partly because I’ve not yet decided what to do with it, but also so that I could enjoy catching a glimpse of it every now and then. I may move it down to the workshop and use it to store my sharpening gear, or it may sit in the music room, I’m not sure yet. I have already promised Dr Moss a School Box for her study, and the pine is sitting in the workshop waiting to be worked. In the meantime, here is a brief beauty pagent of some of my favourite details.

Patinated brass is where it’s at!

The milkpaint allows the texture and details of the underlying wood to come through

Lid moulding – I really like the cove as a transition from the lid to the main case.

Milk paint and soft wax gives a lovely gentle sheen, and makes for a very tactile finish

More patinated brass – the escutcheon adds some visual interest but is still quite understated, I think.
