    I just love boxes

    Here is another one I completed a couple of weeks ago.

    Made from some really nice Padauk. This one is 5" long, 3 3/4" high and 3 1/2" deep.
    Cheers,
    Bob

    That's sweet, Bob. You're right...it's really nice padauk, and you did a great job with it. Have you gotten all the orange dust out of the shop yet?

    Yep, dat is sweet. I too, love padauk but it does not love me. It is one wood that I find very astringent which means that I am probably sensitive to it. Besides it turns all my collars red. But, like your box, sometimes the results are worth a red collar now and again.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Really, relly nice work - you gonna give us any hints on the construction method or is it a trade secret?

    Thanks for the nice compliments everyone. This piece of Padauk was super nice and I felt it need to go on a good project to show it as wel as possible.

    I guess I may as well fess up and tell on myself. Most of my dusty part of woodworking is done outside. All of my tools are on wheels and I just roll them out the door and let the neighbors worry about the dust when I'm done Of course that only works when the weather cooperates.

    Now Mike.... I'm going to be keeping a close eye on you around here.... I know for a fact that you are a box expert and I plan on stealing as much info from you as I can find
    Cheers,
    Bob

    Hey Bob, thats one honey of a box!

    I also love boxes, smaller the better for me. In college I had very little work space or tools, so had to get my woodworking fix through little boxes and pistol grips.
