You people must be getting p….d off with these conversions but as I SOLD 8 of them at the market yesterday I will share this last one with you. Picture 6 is as it was in 2009 and like the other earlier ones I rejuvinated they never looked like selling. Have now rejuvinated 17 boxes and bowls, added some carving, pierced with the dremel and milling burrs and have sold 11 in total and at a higher price. Pic 5 has some pot pourri in it.

Great Ben, I counted about 40 that could be done. A fairly long process with the piercing Chuck, as for hours I have no idea as I usuaslly have 3-4 going at the one time but it’s the enjoyment of the results that count for me and the dollar when they sell.
