I started them as generic boxes back in 2002 when I lost my job. Thought they’d help with income. Less than two months later I was hired on at Computer Sciences Corp and I only put-zed around with them till about a year and a half ago. I promised to finish them and give one to each of the girls for Christmas (13 months ago). I finally got around to getting them done.
The pattern for the chipcarving from Wayne Barton’s first book. The dolphin applique is a stained glass Christmas ornament. The cross is olivewood from Jerusalem. Sold by a kiosk in the mall. The carved wood is basswood. I let the girls choose the wood for the ring boxes. Rachael chose purpleheart and Kimmie chose zebrawood. Thanks for looking.
