    Knock off

    I tried to pattern this box off of Mike Staffords' tutorial....'cause that's how I learned boxes!! The top has more point to it and no burn rings this time, don't know why...just didn't look like that kind of wood. English walnut, of which 100 lbs still remains and Mylands. 2.75h x 3w. The lid lip is very thin...due to me doin' an "Oops!"
    Thanks Mike!!

    Very nice box Jim. Like the design/shape. Do you use the Myland's three step process?

    I wouldn't say the thin lid is an "Oops". If I were you I'd just say that it was 'Skill'!

    The box is a beauty Jim. Very well done.

    Thanks all,
    Jonathan, if by 3-step process you mean apply, rub and buff...yes I do. If it's more complicated than that, then no I don't. But I am willing to learn!

    Looking good, Jim. 100 pounds, huh? I see some more walnut shavings in your future.
