Hey LumberJocks: I loved Andys new PALM box so much that i was excited for this weekend to come that i could try to make one of his boxes. I realy like the way it turned out. I did have a problem with the lid. I started shaping it before i had the pins in and i drill the holes wrong the first time. And there is a little larger gap on one side of the lid then i wanted. However it was a learning experience. I went to Lowes and pic up some brass hinges and Laquer in a can. I was very impressed with the drying time and the way it looks. It was made out of all scarps maple and mahogany wood i had around the shop. The green card board was put down in the pottom so now glue would stick to it, i am going to the store and get some felt for the bottom. I have another one i started to make yesterday and i will post that one soon.
