Introduction: Copper Etched Box

Picture of Copper Etched Box

This is a walnut and copper etched box. The copper is etch with a simple salt water etching technique you can easily replicate. I turn the box on the lathe and finish it with 2 coats of wipe on poly.
Green Lantern logo optional...

I like the Green Lantern symbol

I would have liked to see a picture or shot of the copper once you had cleaned the sharpie off but before you painted it! I also love that you show your failed attempts as well as your successes :)

I found one. Sadly it's after the first coat of paint...

You can see how it etched around the sharpie marks (pretty shallow though) once the paint dried I sanded with 400grit and then sealed it with clear enamel.

Ah, very cool!
