Welcome to March - I Need Your Help!

I've wanted to do some video tutorials for a while. One - live video is scary. Two - it's hard to know what people will find of value. Three - live video is scary.

But, I'm going to do it and I could use a little guidance. I'm always happy to share how I come up with a certain finish. The thing is that when I'm working on an actual piece of furniture, I don't usually know how it's going to turn out or what "shiny thing" is going to make me change direction. 

Recently, I've picked up several adorable jewelry boxes and some just plain boxes. My plan is to show you how I do things on the small boxes AFTER an actual project is complete. 

What do you want to learn?  I currently have five pieces up for sale - all with different finishes.   If you can leave a comment on what interests you, I'll go with the vote. I'm doing this because nothing I do is a big secret. There is no reason in the world you cannot do it yourself. I'll show you how on a small piece and you can decide if you want to try it on a bigger piece. Here are the pieces. Let me know if you're interested in any of them!

Just pick 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5! Or, if you're ambitious, leave a list in order of what you're interested in!
