no previous part Part 1 of My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards series Part 2: The start of my, "Not any kind of box" »

I wasn’t planning on entering, but yesterday the bug bit me.

I usually like to use the material I have on hand, & I couldn’t find a 2×4, so I decided to make a box.

I drew up a pattern of what I wanted to make, & proceeded on my adventure.

That’s all I’m going to show you today is a picture of the piece of wood I’m using.

After all, this is top secret!

Golly Gee. If I’d known it was supposed to be a secret I’d have posted more pictures of my shoes. That wood looks interesting though.

Looks like wood Dick (unless its Formica) so that part of what you are making is OK.

It’s definitely wood. What is it? Spalted maple?

I’m sorry for being such a tease.

I’ll spill the beans tomorrow.
