Just a few boxes ....

Just a few boxes ....

Each one of these boxes required a new set of challenges. Lately the most popular are the glass top box with a wedding invitation on the lid. Folks like to give them as wedding presents. The Irish Dance Shoe box took a little time with the scroll saw and the Sculpted Heart box was a process with a drill and a sanding disc (really fun).

Great fun…


Those are some fine-looking boxes! I’m having a little trouble getting used to the changes Martin has made to the site and at first wondered why you were talking about multiple boxes when it only shows one. I eventually figured out that I had to click on the first photo to see the others!

Thanks for sharing.

lightweightladylefty…Thanks for your kind words. I really did have fun with all these boxes. Re-teaching myself how to use a pyrograph tool (wood burning) has been fun too.

Don’t feel bad about having trouble finding your way around the site either…. I have the same difficulty as well. I don’t think it’s “difficult” ….. just different. It’s just going to take me a little time to get comfortable with it again. As my son says, “Dad, it’s all good.”

Thanks again for your kind words.


Anthony those are really beautiful. Shows a lot of craftsmanship in each. Thanks for sharing.

@ Jack and a1Jim… Thanks fellas … woodworking from a wheelchair has its drawbacks, but making small pieces like these helps stem the frustration. LoL!!

Making “Man Glitter” (as my daughter would say) makes it all worth the frustration.

Thanks again guys.
