I’ve been making some smaller boxes lately that use all the pieces that weren’t quite large enough for larger projects. Let no scrap or cutoff go to waste or feel lonely in the cutoff bin…! I use a Dewalt 611 palm router and a straightedge template and it makes these designs easily. Only takes about an hour to rout out the patterns…and that equates to boxes I can sell at a lower price…never leave any change on the table.

Going down my Greg the Cajun Wood Artist email. Asked for this info on the next post. LOL! Are you going to need a bigger display tent?

Nice evolution of your previous designs.

Tom…hoping they sell fast so I can keep an empty tent…This Leopardwood box is gone already and I just completed it. I just glued another Leopardwood box together to make a replacement.

Hillbilly…thanks. I always have fun changing designs and combining designs. Keeps things interesting and helps new ideas flow.

Great box as always, your work is just amazing!!!

Question, I used lacewood for many years then for a long time i didn’t do much woodworking and when I came back to it i could only find the leopordwood. do you know if its the same stuff just named different. To me it seems much harder then the lacewood I used to use. Either way they both look amazing.

frog…there are very small differences and it is usually hard to tell them apart. I bought a bunch of Leopardwood a while back when I ran across it in a lumberyard. it is definitely hard and dense but I can’t do a good comparison to Lacewood since I don’t have any

No worries I was just wondering since the only place to get exotics in the area only sells the leopard instead of the lacewood now. Oh well I’ll look around to see what i can find over in Oregon maybe.

Thanks for the info Greg, again your boxes rock…....

I think I live in overdrive because I get too bored if I try to relax.
