  • Latest boxes I have built

    Here a a few of the new boxes I have built...sorry about the pictures are not better. All were made from Koa (what the store wants to purchase) You can see that Koa never looks the same...at times I will find white in the board, the color of pine. The shell design came from Kim...I believe she made a few using Carole's ring design on the scroll saw. She was nice enough to share the pattern with me, but I used the bandsaw of course. I have 6 more I will post as soon as they are finished.

    Nice job, Larry. I especially like #3, which looks like leaves on a tree. Looking forward to seeing the other 6--you've been busy!

          Those are great! You have been busy making lots of saw dust.... If you don't mind what are you getting for those on the Big Island?

                      WD, I work on the boxes during the day (when the wife does not have me doing allot to help her around here) and like to read the Kindle while laying in bed at night. I'm sure I could find a few more hours during the day, but then I would not find time to play on the computer and read these posts.

                        I may have to see some of these up close. I'm coming late March, be on Hawaii for 2 days or so then off to Kauai 5 days. First time and we are getting excited. Might have to bring an extra suitcase to bring some of that Koa back!

                          Jerry, 2 days isn't long enough to see the Big Island....but you will have to make due...where will you be staying while you are here? I live in an area called Ocean View, which is about 1/2 way between Hilo and Kona...the two larger towns. Better bring some extra money along with the extra suit case....they think Koa is gold around here most of the time.

                          By the way, you are coming at a great time of year...of course there really isn't a bad time of year in Hawaii. You will love it. Of course the Big Island is much larger than Kauai, but there is so much to do on all the Islands. Have fun

                            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!
