Bandit I will keep your tobacco here in my box, so if you want a smoke ya can come get it.

Woodshaver you are more than welcome, thank you for your time.

Roger, the eagle is a burning. Just simple tracing. Tobacco is my last vise and I am still holding out. I stopped drinking some years ago. Take a nap you deserve it.

Thanks guys!

Very impressive hand tooled box! Love the eagle. I’ve just gotten several BIG cypress logs that I can’t wait to cut into.

I cant wait to see the projects you turn out with that.
Andy it is almost like pine. But the grain is great. Lasts forever outside. Be careful if you do tight joinery. It is very week.
Thank you for the nice words.
