Hughes/Clews style winged box I learned from a youtube video by Bob Hamilton. and spiced it up with some flair.

7” x 2/14×1 1/2”

Black walnut, embossing powder inlay, with ebony lid and commercial inlay border.

A fun project I finished yesterday 20April09.

Thanks for looking.

Hey Dewey this the coolest craziest faroutest box I’ve seen. Did the satellite you shot down look any thing like this?

Does look like a UFO doesn’t it?

I have a small box collection (double entendre intended) and this would go perfectly well with my collection. Your box has a really nice profile and the inlay sets it off.. and just the right size.

Dewey, the actual originator of this box style is a guy named Stephen Hughes. To night when I get home from work I will post a picture of a box he made that I have. Later another friend of mine named Jimmy Clews came up with a variation of the box you posted and has been demostrating it all over the world. A few years ago Bob Hamilton tried to get me to show him at a symposium how to do my tye die effect. I would not because he does other peoples ideas and does not acknowledge them. It is a great looking box and I credit you for acknowledging Bob Hamilton even if its not his idea.

Dale,
Thanks for the info. I was just crediting where I saw the video authored by Bob. I have only been turning since February so I do not know “who is who” in the turning community yet. Bob Hamilton credits Clews for this box but not Hughes. Shoot, I had no idea either way. Looking forward to the pics you have on these boxes.

Hey, did you notice we both live in the Springs?
I live at Constitution and Marksheffel…. odd!
