I made this box about three weeks ago but did not hing it being broke is no fun been out of work to long need some shows to start soon. Anyways I used my last hing today and finished it because it is one of my favorite boxes beside the Bear box. I love it when I find pictures inside the natural wood. I had to cut the center out of a piece of Maple to get this fish but it is well worth it in my book. The Fish looks as if its jumping out of the water. This wood was courtesy of Robert Triplett after I seen the fish I called him and asked him if he wanted the wood back he laughed at me and said he never seen it and to just keep it and make something with it. Of course everytime I see a abstract in wood he never sees it until I point it out and then sometime he still can’t see it. But it is ok because I do see it as well as others. Robert is the reason I started making boxes in the first place and is a good friend. Ok enough of dogging Robert but he always seems to get me back. The box is 8”x5”x41/4”. Made with Maple thanks to Robert and Verdicillo with dowels holding the sides. and finished with Watco a product Robert also turned me onto. The box is still wet from finish.
Smile Robert its ok you can’t see lol.
