Thread: Asian stripe ebony box

    Asian stripe ebony box

    I have made this box today (25.6.09) ( it is part of the batch of wood i was sent-see solstice thread) I had a few problems with it as the stripy ebony would not take a thread no matter what i did, CA, wax etc- so i ended up using box wood inserts

    Wow. That is a really interesting piece. I like the shape and the wood. The threaded connection is awesome.

    Beautiful job, George! Very nicely done.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?
