I really had fun with this. Luckily, I didn’t screw it up too bad.

I made video of how I did it. A typical lousy hairy video. It starts out slow, but stick with it. It’s a little over 3 minutes of your life that you will want back. Maybe someday I’ll get it right.

I didn’t have an old plane to work off of. Maybe that’s a good thing. I wanted it to look old. The natural mahogany wasn’t what I had in mind. I rubbed on a dark stain, then tried to rub it off. I think it feels good in the hand.

I forgot how big it is, I wrote it down and can’t remember where it I put it. CRS.

Hey Tony, did I leave something in the box?

Well done, Hairy! That’s the most fun box in the swap, I’m pretty sure.

Hairy, this was one of the unique ones in the swap. A plane box. Creative!

Hairy, I see you found my folding money. Now, if you could send it to me…..... Oh and the box – yep it is certainly gets my vote for the most unique box. What a great idea and wonderfully executed.
