One thing I never have to worry about where I'm at now is low humidity. Leave a cigar out on a table here and you'd have to wring it out before you could get it lit!
How do you accomplish such a GLOSSY mirror finish like that?? Argh... I'll send a picture of my latest attempt after we finish painting the frame (mobile kitchen island)... i used 4 coats of lacquer for the top, it's glossy, but not nearly as MIRROR-like as that box.
That's really nice!
