Boxes you say?


These are a few from my archives for MsDebbie’s collection.
1) A box to keep my personal planes in.
2) A tea box for a sailor friend.
3) Three little boxes to demonstrate the “mix and match” Boulle style of marquetry cutting.
4) A place for my sharpening supplies.
5) A reversible box, light on the outside and dark on the inside or vice versa depending on how you look at it.

Maybe these little guys can explain the reversible thing a little better.

Thanks for looking. I hope I made you smile.

I am going to have to start wearing a modified muzzle to keep my jaw up and closed, as it keeps dropping and bouncing off of the floor! Simply amazing and fun to watch! Paul, you quite the inspiration.


Those are beautiful boxes shipwright. Quite the talent you have.

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Your work always amazes me. Your skills are top notch!


LOL… Great video. And a favorite of mine has always been that sailor’s tea box!

I am smiling Paul.

Very nice video. I love the part when the box went under the net.

Paul, the words “skill” and “craftsmanship” don’t even describe what you do. “Artistry” itself falls short of accurate. There is no word in the English language that describes your talent.

You sir are unbelievable. A true artist.


Another work of art,very fine work Paul.
