  • Pillow Top Box (Reverse Inlay)

    G'day all,
    I haven't posted anything new in a while, have just been to busy making standard stock items which you have all seen.
    Decided to play a bit and finally finish this little box. I've had the carcase assembled since mid 2009, just couldn't find a suitable pattern for the top.

    I suppose you could call it a "Reverse Inlay"

    It is Radiata Pine with Jarrah inlay and Bands

      John, that is really cool and neat and skookum. I really like the invisible entry holes. Mine look like they were made with a tunnel bore drill. You do great work.

            John, I think waiting until you came up with the right lid design was the right choice...what a wonderfully executed box! Luv the wood choices, design and uniqueness!!! Really like the tray that lifts out.
            Thanx so much for sharing!!!

                        Your craftsmanship is something to strive for the box, and what a nice touch with that little lift knob. I'm "steeling that idea" just so ya know up front.

                                Glad things worked out.

                                I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                                Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

                                So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
