I’ve been watching the buzz around Garyk’s little box. In a 24 hour period he got over 1000 views. I’ve only got one project with over a 1000 views and I’ve been here a few years. 4th in all time comments, 6th most favored…just in 24 hours. What a wonderful box. 24 hours guys! I hope fine woodworking takes note of his little project. Congratulations Gary. Better start finding some room for a new table saw!

I too am amazed by Gary’s box as well as his other work. You’d think some publicatoin would pick up on his work. I can certainly appreciate your new shade of green.

Alright!! Gary is in a different contest – the one I entered had a band saw as the grand prize. I may still have half a chance then. Just kidding, Dennis;-).

I am humbled and amazed by both the artistry and execution of Gary’s box. Great design, great details, great workmanship. I need to keep practiciing.

Of course Not only is his box great but the bird cage made out of 2X4 was also great.

That’s a new record for this outfit.

I kind of like John Deere green.

I just shook my head when I saw it…..of course what do you expect from a guy that builds a harpsichord for the fun of it.
