Great Box. Nice use of old materials. I hope it didn’t take the whole pile to make the box.

How’s the chairs coming along?

Karson, the chairs are on hold until late spring ‘08 (work, work, work). Unfortunately a dent was hardly made in the pile. Need more daughters to get married…

I really like this box and the combination of woods you used. Nice work!

That is a nice looking scrap pile ;^D You could make a lot of boxes out of that!

Great box! I really like the fact that you uploaded the pile of scraps first so that made me very interested in what you made out of it. Again great job.

Great box and good looking joinery. Personalizing it was a very nice touch. How’d you do the lettering?

Great box, the tight doves and carving really set it off.

Beautifully done – nice combination of wood and I like the proportions. I, too, am interested in the lettering technique.

The lettering was done by a fellow woodworker with his laser. I only wish that I could carve that well!
