« Part 12: The finish is nearly done Part 13 of Ambrosia-birdseye maple series no next part

Here is a sneak peak before I post the finished project. I want to thank everyone once again for joining me as I made these boxes. They will have more meaning for my wife and daughter than I can share here. They represent a once in a life time opportunity that they spent together. It is said that swimming with dolphins is one of the most healing things you can do for the spirit. I agree with this, but we cannot all swim with dolphins, so remember that making something for those you love, with all your heart can be just as healing.

And with that I will leave you with a picture and a wish.

The picture:

And the wish:

I wish for you all to remember what Christmas is about. It is about the act of giving with the expectations of nothing in return.

Happy Holidays to all and I will see you next time.

Thanks you so much for letting me share my experiences with you.

I’ve been to this page before, but the other 12 blogs make the journey much more rewarding. From the wood selection, to the bottom sculpting and the installation of the lid pins, WOW. I went back several times, but I also was anxious to get to the next page and see how it progressed.
Wonderful, thank-you

Thank you for the kind words everyone. Together we can all become better at our art.

Thank you so much Sanman. That makes it so worth the time it took me to put the blog together. I can’t wait to see what you do with the info I included.
