Not anywhere special, just at home but here we are

Yes, all of us seem to submit to IKEA at some stage and this is no exception. It took me two and a half hours to put the case together. It was supposed to be a two man job and there was only me!

So I’ve put ‘some’ of my favourites in there. It’s at the top of the stairs into our main floor so guests get and eyefull on arrival.

Be seeing you.

Great collection, Martyn!

Here, our local public library solicits handcrafted items for temporary exhibit in their glass display cases. Have you thought of putting these on display for public consumption? These would make a wonderful enticement to folks interested in woodworking.

Again, a fabulous exhibit!

Michelle, thanks but I wasn’t aware of any write up on me. How do I get access to the e-zine, I wonder?

wood magazine e-zine. 12 pages on you & your boxes. go to Wood Magazine & sign up & get the e-zine, I would guess.

Lovely display. An impressive amount of fine work. “Dinner on the Lake of Fire” stands in a place of honor. Many of mine are just bouncing around the house. I have a couple more boxes to post soon, but I’m feeling the call of a couple of Pembroke tables. :-)

Just wow Martyn.
Individually they are all exquisite but as a body of work (OK maybe only a limb) they are really impressive.
You have every right to be proud of this collection of art.
Bravo!
