I'm happy with the way things turned out after the accident with the stain and agree with some of the comments that were left by you saying its given it a more aged look. To complete the inner i removed the hinges so i could work better on things inside this also now gives the look of a used piece instead of looking like new.
Its been an interesting piece to work on, and i have to say even with the ups and downs I've had i have very much enjoyed completing it and also appreciate the remarks and comments left by all of my friends and followers on here. This piece is now available in my For Sale section.
So with the close of one piece another one comes to mind, this time in the form of a bible box. I have a few ideas swirling around in my head but nothing really solid what i can tell you is that the miniature bible that will sit inside is antique (dates to around 1890-1900) and is hand bound in black leather and for its age is in remarkable condition. I look forward to starting on this very soon and sharing it with all of you.
Many thanks to all who have followed and commented on the progress and completion of this piece its very much appreciated.
Have a wonderful week everyone. Tony.
