Default Improving a forum project

Not too long ago I made a jewellery box as a forum project and put it to one side, having no particular use for it. As my brother-in-law returns to England next week, and in spite of making quite a few presents, plus yesterdays pens, I still hadn't come up with a suitable one for my sister-in-law and I wasn't sufficiently satisfied with the finish on the afore mentioned jewellery box so I carried out these improvements, and for anyone interested, I've included a zip file of the original project.

Harry, when you get around to building my box be sure to sign the bottom. (Or is it the top in Oz?)

Nice work Harry. Your finish is realy nice. I still have a way to go with that.

With practice and prayer, perhaps someday I'll be able to do work like that! Good job! I think I'll download the plans, Harry... but wait... are they dimensioned in metric?

Best,

Tom

As usual Harry nicely executed The Banksia can be a little bland but still has nice color and grain.

The Beading bit is a very nice look as is the finish!

WOW guys, thank you. As for you Mike, I think you would be insulted if I sent you a jewellery box and a toolbox to fit all YOUR tools would require space on a ship the size of a container! Wouldn't it be a good idea for YOU to make something now that life is slowly getting back to normal. Bill, I do get at least eight hours sleep every night but during the daytime I have to be doing "things". Today was a lazy beautiful late autumn Saturday but in the middle of the afternoon I got bored so went into the shed and turned three more Bamboo pens, just ready for assembly as the lacquer will be hard by tomorrow ready for a polishing with ULTRA-SHINE.
Tom, the size can be anything you like, in metric, Imperial or any obscure system you like! The size of this box was dictated by the size of the wood block.
Bob me old mate, newcomers probably don't realise that we are actually bosom buddies.
