« Part 16: Greatest Project Continued Part 17 of dust stuff series Part 18: Carving for inlay »

It’s been a good while since I have been in the shop. With Gabriel’s birth and the rest of the family, I just haven’t had the time or desire to get back in the shop. Well, I have had a influx of new likes on my facebook page thanks to some good people sharing my projects. Seeing my older boxes and all the interest spurred me to get back in the shop. Today I prepped a bunch of lumber for a new batch of boxes. I cleaned up and sized some birdseye maple, chechen, spanish cedar, western cedar, cherry, and jatoba. Now the fun part. How do I take all these woods and put them together to make an amazing box? I’ll figure it out and share the finished projects here. If you would like to follow along, then join me on Facebook.
