Someone showed me a box that a co-worker has on her desk and said that she wanted one to give to a friend of hers that she is interested in for a present. She said she wanted a thunderbird on it. So first I had to find out what a thunderbird is supposed to look like and came up with this. At the store where I work when we get a large shipment of moulding there is always some small pieces of moulding used for the spacers that always end up getting thrown out so I picked out some good ones and took them home. The box is cedar that I picked up at an auction last year. All of 60 dollars for over 2000 board feet I was amazed. The top ambrosia maple. I added magnets to hold the top for an added touch but what I found funny was the lid is so much heavier than the rest of the box that you can barely tell that the magnets are there. I also tried using a flocking kit for the first time and what a difference it makes, it worked out beautifully though you probably can’t tell from the picture. She liked it so much she is keeping it for herself. I guess that means I did a decent job on it.
