« Part 2: Another Col - larboration.. Part 3 of Jewellry Box series Part 4: Mitres cut.. »

I bookmatched some camphor laurel… after resawing on the bandsaw.

I then re sawed a long board and will use the “wrap the grain around every corner” method..

Cutting the mitres for the corners this morning … stay tuned..

And a teaser..
The end grain panel now has a frame of NGR..

YOU SHOW OFF! I SWEAR YOU JUST LIKE TO RUB OUR NOSES IN IT. YOU’RE SO DARN GOOD! LOL! YOU KNOW WE CAN’T GET A MACHINE LIKE THAT LET ALONE MOST OF THE WOOD YOU USE. YOU ARE WHAT MY GRAMMA USED TO CALL A SMARTAS! AWWW! I’M JUST JEALOUS, I CAN’T DO ANYTHING CLOSE TO THE WORK YOU DO. YOU HAVE CLASS MY FRIEND AND GREAT TASTE IN WOOD AND ARTISTIC ABILITY. KEEP EM COMING, MAYBE I CAN LEARN SOMETHING, I DOUBT IT, JUST MAYBE THROUGH THE PROCESS OF OSMOSSIS OR HOWEVER YOU SPELL IT, AND NO, I’M NOT YELLING.

Beautiful wood. that’s your secret. I thought it was craftsmanship! I like the framed wood. I have seen a few spectacular pieces framed like this. they are art by themselves.
