    A Ribbon Box, and another, and another and .. have a look ...

    Yep, 62 in total. 2 have managed to sneak away already. One more slated to go on Monday. The remainder for the daughter's baby shower favors, coming in mid January.

    Woods used:
    Cherry: box sides and top
    Ash: white in ribbon
    Walnut: brown in ribbon
    Poplar: box bottom

    Finish: Danish oil on the cherry and poplar, before attaching ribbons. Then General Finishes High Performance Topcoat, 2 good coats.

    Thanks for looking.

    WHOA - that must have been quite a production operation going on in your shop for some time.

    What an operation.

    They look great.

    Very impressive. A brief tutorial would be great - the only way I can think to do it would take days per box.

    Ditto, those are impressively cool! I can't visualize how you managed to make so many without it taking a year to do?

    Wow Robert, those are great boxes. I am curious as to how long it took you to complete them? You are going to make some points for sure "Grandpa".
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Really fantastic Robert!!!

    "How did you make them," is only the first question.

    Next is: "What to you do for the next grandchild?"
