    Talking Box Swap Time!!! BOXES ARE ON THE WAY!!!

    OK folks, I have been involved in a few box swaps in the past and they are to me some of the most fun I have had here. So since it is the middle of winter and not much happening, how about a swap Depending on interest I will come up with the basic rules. Have it being a flat landers box, turned box or what ever it is that some one wants to swap and will involve as many folk here as possible. These are FUN, YES I MEAN FUN so what is the consensus? Is anyone interested

    Anything that could be interpreted as a hollow object with a lid, as far as I can tell!

    The last swap I was involved in I received the coolest oil lamp. I have also received an incredible cherry burl box, so if it creates interest about anything should be included. Flat, Round, Curved, what ever to make it interesting.

    I'm certainly interested ... and I've wanted to get into flatwork boxes for a long time ... and I finally have a decent table saw (and I know I shouldn't need one just to make boxes). My only hesitation is that I wouldn't be able to "do justice" on my first one. How much time will we have?

    I guess I could always do a turned box, but I haven't made a high-quality box for a number of years. (Same hesitation.)

    Still, I'm game - as long as the "judges" will promise to squint!

    We can make the time period any way that works for those involved and this is a swap that I am proposing. We have the names of all involved put in a hat, so to speak, and at the end of the given time period you would have a name of another in the swap PMed to you and you ship to that person. That way no one knows who will receive whos box until they receive it
