Hey LumberJocks, I told you last week i will not be making any more boxes for awhile. I gueseed I Lied. I have the fever. I was looking at different boxes and i wanted to make a Andy palm box into a Andy art box. Everything turned out great so i decide not to use a grinder on this one and leave it as its. I was afraid i will mess it up. I just bought a angle grinder and it sure takes off a lot of material. Hope you like.

The only cure for this fever is another box I like this one and one day I will try a Andy art box. Good Job

I don’t know but they might have a twelve step program for box making, or was that pen making, or was that turning, or was that carving, or …........

Well, Monty, it looks like you did a pretty good job of making a box and it’s a nice one. :)

A very nice box indeed. I like the grain in you top and the natural finish.

Great looking box – the boxes are my favorites, and the “Andy” boxes are my absolute favorites. One of these days I will have to try some.
