The butterfly is an image I got online. I made a masking template and sprayed it on. Came out pretty good huh?

Leith, you stay away from my secret stash at Lumber Liquidators in Irmo, ya hear? ;)

I must stop in there 3 times a week waiting for those nice Jatoba pallets (Brazilian Cherry). I think thats the most satisfying part of it, using the pallets, is that you know if you don’t grab them when they show up, they’ll be wasted. And what beautiful wood you can find. I’ve been making mostly cutting boards and now pizza cutter handles out of it. Keep up the beautiful work!! And keep on making that free wood into art.

Beautiful boxes Leith, it’s amazing what a great waste of wood goes to the land fills. Picked up some good info on free sources, [Lumber Liqudator’s in Irmo, I wonder how long it would take there from Wauchula,Florida ??].
