  • First Box

    This tulip box pattern is by Janice Manuel out of the Aug 2011 other mag. You can put potpourri in it.

    The pattern called for butt in joints but I like miter joints better. Also it called for 1/4" and I made it out of 3/8" walnut.

    This is my first try at a box, you sure learn alot by doing
    First picture isn't very clear, didn't notice until I uploaded it, lol

    Wow, what a beautiful box!!! You wouldn't think this was your first...and I hear ya about what you learn when you are doing it...sometimes the mags make it look way easy...NOT! Did you stack cut the sides, or cut them individually? Ya gotta luv Walnut, it is a dream to work with...one of my favs.

          Thanks for all of your input. I did stack cut the sides two at a time. I was very happy how the corners turned out for my first time making miters.

              Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

              I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

              These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
