    Latest project

    I have another retirement in my group at work. She has been with the company for 43 years, very rare this day and time. Attached are photos of a box I made for the retiree. The crosses are inlaid African Blackwood. The other wood selections include tiger maple and walnut. This was the maiden voyage of my incra I-box which worked extremely well. I always struggle with small boxes as it is difficult to add character and with the crosses, an additional challenge to keep it from looking like an urn. I round the front and back sides and the top is supported in the front by the lift.

    In no way does that resemble an urn, my man! I believe you will have a very appreciative recipient of that beautiful box.
    I like making things. I have a wood shop at home. I am a terrible carpenter but I love doing it. Raymond - Charlotte, NC

    Now that's a really kool box! Looks like the I-Box worked quite well!

    Very nice, beautiful inlay and I agree with Raymond it doesn't look like an urn.
