These are some small POP top boxes. Yes when you pull them open they pop. Tight fit. Have had a fit trying to get the right fit. Burned with india ink applied about 3 inches in size

Yes as always Critiques are just fine

Very neat boxes Ron, must be a very tight fit to make the pop. Really like the finish and the burning.

I sure hope those lids stay as they are now..i have yet to make one that did not expand or contract over time….the little flower on top is a nice touch

Interesting Ron, I love the embellishment.
Thanks for showing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Great boxes! How did you keep the ink from bleeding into the wood where it was not wanted? I would also like to see a photo of the interior.

Switching topics – did you ever decide on a finial for your Burn Baby Burn project?

Thanks for posting, all of your projects are beautiful.

Mick I did turn these in the desert with humidity at 7% so they are as small as they could be. Not sure what happens when I send them north as they are both sold. They can be sanded too if they expand. Leafherder I sprayed them with very light coats of lacquer and they would not then spread. India ink is non alcohol so it does not dilute in finishes. I have not tried any wipe ons yet.
Lefherder yes I did add interior photos. These are my first so I did not work hard on the interior I wanted to learn the fit process
