  • Puppy and Kitten boxes.

    These boxes are made of pine and measure 8"x6"x3" outside dimensions. The grey in the kitten is corian. This was my first use of corian. Both images are inlaid into the hinged lid.

    Your work is excellent, and I like the patterns. What is the white in the kitten?

      I used basswood for the white feet.

          Really nice. Any kid and a lot of adults would be pleased to get one of these as a gift.

              Next you will be cutting coins like our buddy Randy and inlaying them. Those inlays are wonderful. I might have to come to Texas and become an understudy.

                  A piece of corian was given to me years ago by a woodworker that was quitting the hobby. Finally tried it. Not impressed.

                    I'm a big kid at heart! Looks really nice. Glad you posted them. How long did they take to make?

                      More masterpieces Jim. I'll come with Scott and do an understudy. Interesting you didn't like working with the corian. Can you tell us what you didn't like about it?

                        Corian re fuses together after the saw blade goes through it. I also am not fond of the flat, no grain, look of this plastic material.

                        My boxes take me two hours to make. The inlay takes much less time than building the box does. Finishing takes days of drying time also. I put three coats of wipe on poly so at least three days but only a minute each day for that. Time at the saw, cutting the inlay, is about five minutes. Each color of wood requires a different inlay.

                          I hope those are not the only two you made, get ready for orders at the craft sales. Outstanding job Jim.

                              Betty. You are welcome here in my very dusty workshop any time. I am currently helping a friend here in Lubbock learn to do inlay.
                              Gloria. I made two of the kitten boxes and four of the puppy boxes. Yes I plan to make more before my first sale in June and before I open our new (still under construction) website.
