Louis’ Rogowski Style Jewelry Box

Viewer Project - By Louis DeHan from Spokane. WA
Added on November 21, 2016

I liked the Rogowski style jewelry box and decided to give it a try. I seem to be attracted to exotic woods and selected bamboo and ebony for this interpretation. Since no one seems to sell ebony dowels, I had to turn my own, a fun project in itself.
I wanted to maintain the very blond color of the bamboo so I needed to find a finish that was actually clear, not yellowing. I used General Finishes High Performance Semi Gloss and it worked great. I applied 5 coats with a light sanding between the 3d and 4th coat.
