I like to share y work with others, particularly those who provide me with the raw materials. One of the guys in the timber yard I often frequent asked me how much to make a box for him. I said, tell me what timber and joinery and I can give you an idea. I overheard him saying to someone else that he would be getting a box made for his brother’s ashes. his yardman is only in his late twenties. I really coudn’t charge him for the making, so when he asked how much again, I said, no charge from me ..pay it forward to someone you know could use a hand.
The timber is River Red Gum, highly figured. Its about 12”x8”x8”. Finger joints are 1/2” off a Leigh D4R.
I’ve also put below two other boxes, ones highly figured South American Myrtle, the other is European Oak with a bookmatched top and Wenge splines. These are on display at a Timber Yard here in Melbourne. I have other pictures if you want them and I can give full details of how they were made also.
