OK here is the story regarding the production of this box.
1. In 2011 I went to the RNA wood expo, met Rod Carins from Tassie, bought some lengths of Myrtle from his display, see picture 1
We chatted for a while and then Rod introduced me to Lazy Larry and Aaron who were inside the exhibition hall at the Torque Work Center Stand, as a result Larry invited me to visit his workshop to see the TWC in operation for myself.
2. I spent some time there and discussed just about everything including purchasing some of his fine wood.
3. The Purple heart was from his stock, and he asked to see some results so here they are.
4. Thanks to both Larry and Rod for their hospitality and advice.
I also visited along time friend Grant who has a Lucas mill in Kyogle and he invited me down to assist in milling a few Camphor laurel trees and some slash pine. Hence see the the CL Oval shaped lid box.
Inlay work also interests me so the chain link box was a project I took on.
I made a series of templates (of most went into the Otto Bin) in an attempt to produce a representative realistic image of a chain. Eventually I got it right, the petal was to cover a defect.
They were added to try to fill in the 6 pictures.
