This is a box that was turned for me 5 years ago by a friend and extrodinary turner named Stephen Hughes. The box was turned from a block of Macassar Ebony. The wing was broken while Stephen turned it for me but I did not care. Instead of making it a 2 wing box he simply turned the wing from some baltic birch ply. I told Dewey I would post this tonight as the originator of the wing box technique is Stephen. I really believe we can modify something with our own ideas as long as we remember to give credit where credit is due. When ever I want insperation I look at this box and remember there is always some one better than I am and I will always have alot to learn. That is evident on this site as there are some outstanding wood artist here and I commend everyone for posting from the beginner to the so called master.
