Nicely done Rob. I like the flocking in the letters. Way cool.

Thanks everyone for the comments,

I checked out the production of this paint brush box

I made it in November 2009 for my daughter in law
She is very artistic but being a young mother limited in resources at the time.

Yes she did smile !!

It has got to be one of my earlest wood working projects I had done as in 2009 I was still employed then!

I also made my son a pen holder from the offcuts, its still sitting in his office today!

The image is created by tapered layered sanding

I will have to see if I can find the first ever project I did and post it challenging LJs to post also
Looking back in hindsight what a clanger it is going to be, but at the time no doubt a treasure inspiring more work and developing skills.

-- Regards Robert
