Default teardrop box

My latest box.

made with a wonderful piece of heat treated rippled sycamore at front and back, with beech and ply in between.The pics dont do justice to the sycamore, its the most impressive wood I have seen. I was given an offcut of it from a custom furniture maker.

Now that is nice. And I am sure the pictures don't do it justice, should look even better in person. If I were you I'd make friends with that guy.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

He's over 2000 miles away and on a different continent, so wood care packages are few and far between.
I must take photography lessons, I just cant display it properly.

Regardless, stay on his good side. Me, I'd be happy to pay postage, if I was getting stuff that looks that good.

Oh the pictures are fine. I just don't think you're going to get the full look in a picture, it's one of those things you've got to see in person. I'm really going to have to try something like that for one or two of my projects.

Very nice Bob. Where is the Sycamore from. I have made several tables out of Spalted Sycamore, but yours look
much better.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
