back in the summer a few months back i was building some yard chairs and benches .it got to consuming all my time as i proable work slower than most ,but a friend was having his 36 year anniversary so i asked a LJ friend if he could build a box for me and i would pay him as my skills aren’t that good and time was tight he said he would be honored his name as on this site is patron or David as i know him . this was a beautiful box and i was proud of it as a gift to a old friend .sometimes things just dont go as planed thou my Daughter came over to visit and to be honest i missed a lot of her younger years , she saw this box and was so full of surprise at it she just assumed it was built for her .i lied maybe not the right way to handle this but i didnt want to change that look in her eyes and told her it was but that i didnt make it but was build by a wood craft master that teaches about wood craft ,she cherushes this old box as if its a piece of gold, this is her showing it off one day at her house on her face book
as time went on i hit some hard times and had to draw back for my woodwork and take care of some mis steps on my part and was off line for a while i really missed coming to this site and seeing all the projects and learning from the masters that hang out here and the friends that i have meet here ,i would go to friends homes and get on there puters and there was lots of my friends asking about me that really made my days many a time during those days that i was down ,one day i got a package and in it was a box from my friend Patron it was beautiful box with a starburst on the top a Technic that he had taught me that i had used on one of my benches
Thanks David and the friends that have helped along this journey of wood working. i had posted a project on a Boot Storage Bench and a very good friend and wood worker that builds some pretty awesome boxes himself posted on it
What a cool idea and a great job on the build. I studied David’s sunburst technique and it didn’t look easy to me. You are way past the beginner stage when you can create something like this. (and unlike my stuff, this is useful!).

i had said on that project i was a bigginer that it was easy but what i should of said with the way David explained it it was not as difficult as i thought and Andy i would have to respectably disagree with you on your stufff like those boxes yall build they are very useful ,as most that get these boxes see them and it bring a smile on there face many times and know someone built this and cared enough to give it to them its very useful to lift up one sprites with what yall build they are more than a box
i keep this box on my kitchen counter see it every day and always brings a smile
thanks David and Andy and all my LJ friends for the friend ship and help as we journey through this old world.
