Welcome to the Wood Shop, everybody. My name is Justin Skaggs. Iím super excited to introduce the limited edition Box Pro BLACK. The Box Pro Black is a Limited Edition Color Series stick of my Box Pro design. There are going to be 10 of these made, and they will be available at Midnight on Thanksgiving and then, I think I might do this annually as a way to say goodbye to Fall and say hello to Winter, but Iím not really sure. For now, there will only be 10, and they will only be available while supplies last.
Iíve always wanted to make a murdered-out Woodie, but I still want to make sure theyíre all game-ready and game-functional, so I used a proper wood stain instead of a paint, so that it wouldnít chip off. Now, Iím not a fan of artificial gut wall, so I wanted to go back and use out dyeing process and create a nice, deep, rich, black gut wall. So, we went back through our normal process, but the difference this time was that usually, Iím super paranoid about how saturated the gut wall is, and how long I let it sit, so that the color doesnít become too dark or too light if I were to pull it out, but with the black, we wanted it to be as dark as it could get, so it was a little more of a comfortable process than weíre used to.
To complete this color scheme, I handed it off to Rich so he could install this beautiful black pocket as you see here, and put the gut wall structure in. Now, my favorite part about this project is how many different textures are all being represented within the same color. So, you have this nice, glossy frame, and you have a lot of natural materials, and a lot of matte materials, all kind-of co-existing in this beautiful cross.
The last thing I needed to do was put on the Color Series emblem, and my makers mark on the side, but I didnít want to add a white ďWĒ Tree or anything, so I decided just to burn it in and have kind of a natural 2-tone with a different leveling pattern. Iím really happy with how that came out, and I think it put a nice finishing touch to it. Again, Iím going to make 1-10. Iím only going to make 10 of these, and I might pick it up next year, but if you guys want one of these, they will be available on Thanksgiving. Until next time, take care. Keep LAXin.í
