    Beautiful work Larry. You certainly got the very best use out of the wood.

    Now you need to turn something.

    Good answer Larry. I'm sure you knew I was kidding you about turning. I know you are a flat worker, and a darn good one at that. All the best!

    Larry...

    Just a box, eh? Some box. Beautiful. The cedar looks cool with the oak. If I just thought about it I might have said no, but seeing your implementation it works...very elegant.

    Good luck in bow season.

    Cheers.
