    Scrap Box Concoction

    Body; Sweet Chestnut, Walnut and Oak.
    Lid: Walnut and Ash.
    A bit of head scratching on angles and dimensions, a couple of spoons full of glue and a bit of wax and something for the boss to grab as a gift for someone.

    Hi,

    Either you are magic with wood or you have a magic wood scrap box.

    It is beautiful.

    Thanks for showing and Enjoy,

    Very well done. I'm afraid you must do your scrap shopping at a different store than I do!

    Another great piece, Chas. With you around the house, your wife has access to some very nice gifts.
