this box was ordered yesterday (tuesday) , from maine .
it has to be there by noon saturday ,
i started it at 7:00 last night after work .
got it built by 10:00 last night ,
but had to go after work today and get the handle and clasp .
because of the time restraint , i used renaissance wax on it .
it is nice and smooth anyway ,
they will have to strip it and do a finnish on it later if they like .
tim didn’t want any bells and whistles ,
he said if it might get stolen .

it is for a young native american boy ,
my friend tim , is having a prayer service for this young man ,
and the group wanted to give him something to keep his paraphernalia in .

“THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL ” (where have i heard that before ) ?

oh , yea , the last box i made , the check was in the mail 2 weeks before i gave it to a friend that gave it to a friend that was flying to new york .
the box made it fine . http://lumberjocks.com/projects/33094
the woman that ordered it ,was not . a real self centered b#*%h !
not only did she lie about the check , she ‘forgot’ to give the money to the guy returning to bring to me ,
so she was going to send it to me direct , then she ‘forgot’ again ,
it is in the mail from here , from some other friends !
so 5 people were used and lied to in this event . all because that air-head has to travel and ‘help’ the poor of the world (?)
don’t bother lady , we can starve just fine on our own !
stick to admiring your self in the mirror . some one might like you there .

this check is in the mail , tim is a world class stand up guy , something harder to find these days ,
except here on LJ’s !
thanks for the look-see ,
have a great day !

David,
Great box. It’s nice to see a change up on the finish. I know there is a young man that will cherious this gift.
I wish I had a five dollar bill for every check I’ve been promised was in the mail. We could have one great party.
When the cash flow is there, these don’t make you. But in this economy it can break you.
Keep on leading us Maestro. You example inspires all of us. Rand
