  • See my sea shell

    Finished the sea shell by Steve Garrison in the new SSWC magazine issue 47, was a challenging project for me, but sweeeeet fun. Used pine with some knots that ended up at the wrong places......oops.

          Great job Wd. You beat me to doing one. I think it might be possible to turn one into a night light using LED's I will let ya know when I get it done.

          In the latest issue of SSW&C summer 2012 Issue #47 pages 34 through 39 are the plans for doing these really unusual nautilus shells.
