Hello my friend, here we have two boxes which bring to mind one of LJ ’s most inspiring jock one David Patron. Over the years on this site David has influence countless no. of us jocks to get in the shop and let the juices flow. David has introduce us to so many jigs and creative ideas and these two boxes just remind me so much of David style, so I named these two box after him. Thanks to David and so many other jock who contribute to this community in so many ways. These are made up of Bird Eye Maple, Lacewood, Curly Maple, Blk. Walnut and Yellow Heart. Finish off with Danish Oil and Shellac…thanks for viewing BC

These are beautiful boxes.

It’s pretty amazing to have David walk you (me) through his process, on pieces like this.

But …. to translate that teaching to action, and actually build boxes like this …. fantastic !

wow BC
these are very nice boxes
well done

one of the things about LJ’s
is that there is not a line
between teacher and student
we are all both
at different times

thank you for the honor

that you
‘let the juices flow’
is a testament to your own abilities
and talents

keep up the good work

Those are some very impressive boxes. The teacher has spoken and he says we all share the blame. It’s cool to learn from each other.

And I thought Patron was thinking out of the box…
Really nice work, and really kind of you.
