Still working with the Oak. Got another one being fumed with ammonia. Typing with one hand cause I smashed my finger. OUCH…! type more later when throbbing stops.

Very nice box Gregg. The finger sure looks like it hurts, done that myself a few times.

I really love the way you age these. Great work.

My fingers know how you feel.

Stuff like that usually happens when I’m doing two things at the same time and not paying attention.

@Greg—Nice box. It does look like it’s very old wood. Sorry to hear about your collision with the hammer. Hope you didn’t get your DNA on the box. Heal up quickly!

Nice Box, I had a finger to match, mine was a collision with a dust collector impeller but it looked exactly the same. It really hurts…............ a lot.

Another nice box. I think you have this type of box nailed, er uh “perfected”. Hope the finger gets well soon.

Hey Greg, I don’t mean to put more pressure on the finger. Just a quick question. Is this fumed as well as sandblasted?

You sure will likely remember this box. Nice one, the box I mean. :-)

Don’t worry. It will feel better once it stops hurting.

The box is fantastic. Is this weathered oak actually weathered or is it a treatment. It is great.

These weathered boxes are starting to grow on me.

That finger will run into everything you get near for the next month!

Amazing weathering look on the box. How do you do that. Also, is it weird that when i saw the last pic the first thought that entered my mind wasnt ‘ouch” or “man that must have hurt” but was instead “Get it away from the wood. No matter what, never bleed on the wood”?

This box is my favorite one that you made so far. I would recommend that the next time that you move that finger – ouch, that looks sore!
