Brother Greg, nicely done! Now I’m inspired and may actually start that traveling gavel box I made plans for a few years back.

There is enough talent here that we could have some of the most beautiful Lodge furniture ever seen. Thanks for the compliments my brothers.

i think we got it Brothers !
i joined by doing the temple floor in linolium (1/8” industlial tile ) for the local lodge , but nobody knew how to cut it .
i tried everything and called the factory and tool companys ,from paper cutters to heating the tiles and cutting with
a razor knife . after 2 days of frustration i brought some tiles home and made a sled and cut them like wood .
the brothers were so impresed they asked me to join the lodge . i was unemployed at the time so couldn’t join
( and didn’t know anything about them either ) . well Brother kieth payed my entrance and 1 year dues .bless his soul , he passed last year .
now i am an endowed member and am the lodge maintenance supervisor .( i guess they saw me coming )
good to meet with you all , lets get together again sometime .

Nice work Brother! Fairly intricate how long did it take you to make it. They would be a big hit at the Blue Lodge.

Joe, the entire thing is only 6” square so it only took 2 hrs. tops, but I also do mostly scroll saw work, which like anything else the more you do it the quicker it gets. Thanks for the compliments My Brother.
