You’ve raised the bar Andy. I’m honored. Wow. I really like the right-hand two-tone one. The others look good too. Now I’m gonna haf to try some flat ones. I have some Mahogany that is gonna look real good tomorrow.

Monte, Have you ever seen a cow at a pub? Ha ha.

Cows sometimes stop in between their night shift at Mini Mart and stopping to get their welfare & WICKED checks

Great boxes, Andy!!!!! LOL. Seriously, that was the best use for left over wood. Great!

Well looks like every one has said it all, cows in bars looking for crosses a hijacker is on the loose, Monte’s lips are sealed, oh and your crosses are awesome too :)

And I think I know which lady Woodbutcher is referring to, lets hope Andy’s postings passes her by.

Beautiful work Andy

Rod, That’s why I posted these. Dan, Those tapers are the offcuts from the quilt rack tapered arms! (ready made) My favorite is the big one in the center (Arkansas cherry, 3/8 roundover all the way around, and shop made Jatoba dowels). These are fun and quick (and gave me an excuse to buy a keyhole router bit!). I am working on another box made completely from other project offcuts. My mama always said: “waste not, want not”. Rance, My photography sucked today: those 2 toned ones arent really flat. The redwood in the center is 1” thick and the wood around the edges is 5/8”( I got that idea from yours).
