  • Strange Trinket Box

    Here's a little box I'm working on. A friend who makes custom pool ques, guitars and recurve bows gave me a box of scrap exotic hardwoods. The sides of the box are made from one piece that I can't identify and there wasn't enough for the lid and bottom. So.....a little creative cutting and staining of the oak top resulted in a really strange looking box!!!

    Kind of a strange illusion effect, but I like it!

        Neal. pretty box. but mmmmmmmmmmmmmm looks unfinished. are you going for a unfinished or shadow look. the birds ey on the sides looks great. and the top. looks kinda heavy. but maybe a mirror. or some jewels. or something. but realy. finish staining the whole thing. yuuk. sorry. not a loss for sure. nice cutting. just needs something. like some leather dyes or something. Evie hay I got it. a midalion. orrrrrr. welllll. the top is just to big. sorry. Evie or even a small segmentation. on the top. OK done

          That's weird, on my Volume disk 5, in the index I have Aticle index, Issue PDF's, and pattern pullouts.
          The pattern pullouts are broken up into 8-1/2 x 11 s

          At he end of each issue is a copy of the entire pullout for that issue....

          Our house is 3/4 of a mile from the bay, and then about 2 miles across the bay by boat to fire island and the ocean. About half of the bay is shallow with lots of shore birds etc. Google Belllport Village in maps. For us this place is a small slice of heaven.
          Lots of Egrets and Great blue Herons,...
