    A couple boxes

    Here is a couple boxes I just made.
    The first is Bubinga with a green felt lining for my daughterís 35th birthday. I managed to get enough lumber from some cutoffs I found while searching through some miscellaneous stuff at the yard I frequent.
    The other is a smaller momento box for LOML made with quilted maple and walnut. The maple was actually cutoffs from straight line rips at the lumber yard. They were only about 5/4 square with bark still attached.
    Both boxes were finished with 2 coats of Formbyís tung oil rubbed in. Finishing is NOT my forte yet but, I am going to keep trying. Also, you can tell, Iím not great at taking pictures either, but Iíll keep trying at that too.
    Thanks for looking.

    I used the adhesive back felt from Rockler. Made templates out of poster board for each side and bottom, then stuck the felt to the templates, then glued them into the box. I was afraid that the glue would probably soak into the material and mess things up,, that's why I just glued them in with templates attached.

    Very nice. Both look great but if I had to pick a favorite, I'd pick the second one.
