Really nice Chas. Well done.

Great looking box Chas!
How do you get the pieces shaped for the swirl effect? Do you use a template and route them to shape?

Really great craftsmanship Chas!!! The swirl pattern is all the more dramatic with your choice of wood.

Jeepers. If I just get a nice rectangular box I think I am great. Your swirled, round ones are wonderful.
It sure must be nice to have such talent. I'm 87 Dec. 31st 2011. I don't have enough productive time left (I figure 13-14 years) to get that good. I think Glenn should have interested me in woodworking about 25 years sooner.
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
Great stuff. I really like the way the bead around the lid sets it off.
Both look great.

Your swirl lids always amaze me, Chas, and this new batch is no exception. I know how you do it, I just don't know how you do it.

Chas those are excellent. Darn good photos too. They appear real enough to want to touch them.
Those are definitely winners great mix of wood. Cant say enough about them.
Went back and had another look i really like the walnut beech ones. Is the top and bottom ring not cherry or is that also beech? Lovely contrast and i like that dark fleck in the beech. Is that sap pores?
