These are my take on Andy’s “Palm Boxes”. These are simple, fun and a great way to use up those small scraps so many of us hate to throw away. If you haven’t seen his great tutorial, you can check it out here.
I figured these were a good oppurtunity to try out a simple plug overlay that I’ve been wanting to do. The box in the second pic is Black Walnut, Padauk and Walnut. The plugs are Zebrawood, Padauk, Maple and spalted Maple. The box in the fourth pic is Walnut, Cedar and Black Walnut with Padauk, Cocobolo, Wenge and spalted Maple plugs. The last box is Myrtlewood with a live edge, Purpleheart and Tennessee Cedar. The plugs are Maple, Purpleheart and Tennessee Cedar.
I made these for Christmas gifts which I hope will be well received. I want to thank Andy again for taking the time and effort to put together the blog, as well as his inspiration.
Any comments/critiques are welcome and thanks for looking.
