  • My first post and poor photography

    G'Day All

    Have been making a few boxes, thought you may like to see my efforts. Sorry about the photography as taken with flash under tungsten light.

    Cheers

    Nice boxes Bernie. What wood did you use? Thanks for sharing them with us.

      Silky Oak, Pine and camphor Laurel, glad you like them, pity about the photography.
      Silky Oak from an old church pulpit I was given, Pine from an old table and Camphor Laurel from local tree falling.

              Bernie,

              Great looking boxes! Considering the lighting, the pictures turned out well.

              If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

                Bernie -- Great boxes. Kim is right, re-purposing wood is great -- and a lot cheaper than buying new wood. The wood in the first box looks a lot like lacewood.
