    Man that's some mighty fine looking wood. Nice box too. !
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Man! I hate installing mortise hinges! I don't install enough to be competent much less good! Next time I'm going with the router and a jig!

    Got the first coat of finish on. I'll start on the tray tomorrow maybe. Lucas is getting his wisdom teeth taken out in the morning.
