Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpg
Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpgLeft oblique view115 viewsThis is a western Massachusetts low chest, more plain and primitive than a Boston-made version. I used Moser's Honey Amber Maple waterborne aniline dye to get the color of aged maple. I applied a single coat of gloss wiping varnish after applying the dye. Next, I applied five coats of one-pound cut amber shellac. I then carefully applied and scrubbed away with mineral spirits a dark glaze in the fillets, corners, etc. to accentuate the moulding details. Last a sixth coat of one-pound cut amber shellac.Sgt42RHR

After some careful scraping this was revealed H & R ROKER [CAST STEEL?] Does anyone know about this manufacturer?

bagpipe_case_crotch_grain_top.jpgWalnut crotch grain lid128 viewsThis lid came from an off-cut from another project. I sawed it in half, book matched it, planed it to 1/2 inch. I think the figure looks like one of those Siamese fighting fish. Five coats of 1 pound cut amber shellac, an ebony glaze wiped on and off, and then a couple of coats of satin wiping varnish.
