I had a real punky piece of “I don’t know” wood that I thought was kind of pretty. I decided to cast it in Alumilite ad see how it turned out. Pretty wild!

Very attractive box, and I love the casting.
Great job.
Thanks for showing,


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Beautiful,whatever the wood is. Nice way of taming a punky piece of wood.
