    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

    I'm in. And as a Recipient of one of Tom's boxes, I can tell you that whoever gets his next box will be a very lucky person!

    +1 on that I also have one and am glad I don't need to compete with him. I got a clock too Brent...

    This could be fun. I have also been the recipient of some nice items from variuos swaps. I stink at flat work but I could turn a box for someone. Count me in. Timeframe is no issue for me. Anytime is OK.

    Thanks Tom.

    I guess I better check in here a little more often and keep tabs on this.

    OK thanks all, looks like we have some interest I am going to give this time for all who want to get in, I would think that by the end of this month should be good. At that time I will get and confirm a head count and come up with a completion date that will work for everyone. Getting excited and am already working on a design

    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.
