    Some Boxes ** 5 Pics **

    I haven't posted any work here, I figured I'd show you what I've been up to lately. These were the last three pieces off my old 1236 lathe






    First Two:
    About 5" high.

    Maple and Bubinga with Holly and Maple inlay



    Third:
    Maple and Bubinga
    About 2.5" high





    Fourth and Fifth
    Maple and Khaya with Khaya and Turquoise inlay


    Thanks for looking.

    Oh I just love the first one. I'm a sucker for flowers. They are all very nice. Nice boxes and wonderful inlays!

    wow!! beautiful work...but i like lidded boxes.

    how do you finish the interiors of deep boxes??? i find it difficult to sand the bottoms, especially.

    Very nice boxes, Ron. I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite...they all look great. Well done on the inlay.

    I must have missed it, forgotten it, or not been paying attention, but what did you replace the Jet with?

    Thanks All

    Vaughn I picked up a 3520B

    Clark: I clean the inside as best I can with a Kelton Hollower, then with a with some sandpaper and forceps. I have gone up to 8" or so this way.

    Gord, isn't thats the way we all learn?

    They are all beautiful, it's difficult to pick a favorite.
