These are part of 40 palm boxes I have made to sell at my church for money to support our mission projects. We have about 40 people in Alabama rebuilding a church and another group of 65 in Crossville, TN on a project. This is something First Baptist Church of Fairburn, Ga. has done for the past 29 years. Go to facebook and enter in the search box FBC Fairburn Builders for Christ to follow the project in Bug Tussell, Al. Yes that is the name of the town.
Since I could not go, I have made these boxes to help pay for someone else to go. The mahogany wood is from the old church pews from our last remodel. They were in the church from 1969 to 2007.
Now for the tip. I understand that some LJ’s glue the brass pin. Doing the glue seemed messy for me. I have made my pin point like a chisel. This was done on my belt sander, but any grinder would do. This makes the pin profile return to its orginal position. If someone has an easier way, I would like to hear about it.
