Hi yall, I hope I posted this in the correct section! This is my first box. The wood I used was pithy in several spots and I wasn't quite sure how to deal with it at certain times, especially during finishing. I just couldn't get those spots smooth. But I did what I could with what I had and over all for my first one I'm not terribly unhappy with it. It was definitely a learning experience for me for when I make some more. If anyone has any suggestions on how to deal with pithy wood on anything, any tips would be appreciated! Also any constructive criticism would be appreciated. Thank Ya'll for always being so supportive! I really do love this forum! It's wonderful being somewhere with like minded folks!
