Ever have one of those boards with a knot that seems to stare at you like it was an eye? I had this board for a few months now, no matter where I seemed to put it, I could always see it staring at me. So one day, I carved it into an eye.. for no other purpose than to send it out the door. Recently I got an email from a friend of mine that her partner collects boxes… and if I could make one for her birthday. I dislike making boxes .. but here was the opportunity to get this creepy thing out of my sight. I just won’t tell her, I think the eye is creepy.. LOL. I had some spare test parts sitting around so I made the container from a piece of fir and stained it Violet… sanding back until the figuring was visible again. The eye and base is Hickory. Not perfect by any means, but I finished it last night… shipping it out tomorrow.
