    Couple of new things

    Requested salt box, 4x2ish from a gal at work. She wanted a small one so I opted for a drop fit lid with an under cut lip for easier pick up. Cherry with 4 coats of satin WOP.
    Satin chrome EB in crushed lapis Tru-stone for our DIL at Christmas. Enjoy and thanks for looking!

    Great looking box Jim. The pen is top notch.

    Great looking Salt Box Jim. I like the effect to burnt rings show.
    Nice work on the crushed Lapis Tru-stone.
    Are you sure the plating is Satin Chrome, looks like Copper from here?

    Good stuff, JB. The cherry in the salt box should darken nicely with age. What's the EB stand for? I can't recall a kit name that'd match those initials.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Good Grief! I don't think I have heard the term "Salt Box" for at least 50 years.
    They are real neat, and this one is even better.
    Guess I will have to make one or more. Thanks for the idea.

    Enjoy,
