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
<p>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 :) </p>
<p>I found one. Sadly it's after the first coat of paint...</p><p><a href="http://i.imgur.com/iwu8rsA.png" rel="nofollow">http://i.imgur.com/iwu8rsA.png</a><br><br>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. </p>
<p>Ah, very cool!</p>
