Have you ever had high hopes for a project, took your time to do it right and give it that little extra, only to have it come out a few sandwiches short of a picnic? Well, this is my entry. I decided I would try out a larger pattern with the plugs I’ve been experimenting with and this is the result. Originally intended to be a loose interpretation of a butterfly, came out looking more like a crab, hence the name. I had intended on this being a Christmas gift for my daughter. I’m not sure if I will give it to her now or not. If I do, maybe I will stick an IOU in it for another box after the new year. Who knows, maybe it won’t scare her to death, lol.
The woods used are Tennesse Cedar, Oak, Wenge, Purpleheart, Jatoba, Quilted Maple, Lacewood and Black Walnut. The bottom and tray are lined with purple faux suede. Thanks for taking the time to look and as always, any comments are welcome.
