    more box's !!!

    hello folks here are some more box's from the last few shed days

    tulipwood (brazilian)
    first time i'd ever used this wood and it wont be the last a real pleasure to work with.
    2 3/4"" high by 1 3/4" wide



    Ziracote
    another first for me- very dry and dusty slightly brittle timber and a pain to try and photograph being shiny black!!!
    3" high by 1 3/4" wide



    cocobolo with boxwood threaded inserts
    3 1/2" long by 1 3/4" wide




    another Asian stripe ebony box with threaded boxwood inserts and carved ends
    6" long by 2" wide




    and finally a new batch of cococolo i've just bought with very unusual figureing

    here it is before roughing


    and now i've roughed it out



    there are distinct zonal areas of figure its stunning stuff

    wow some sharp stuff, george. now for the million dollar question. when yu part the two pieces and get the threaded parts in..can yu get a fine enough seperation cut to have it come together and have the grain line up pretty close..in these i see yu have intenionally left a gap for these..
    If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

    Don't put off today till tomorrow!

    thanks Larry- yep i could if i wanted but i prefer the gap- i only part through with a 1/16" tool so it normally doesnt cause any issue's
