    Here is one of the shadow boxes I make. Cherry box with white oak diagonal for the flag. The white oak was taken from the USS Constitution during a refit.

        Andy , you said you built those while you were in college ?

        "Very nice desk"

        I recently saw that in Tauntons magazine of fine
        furniture. Had a whole build section on it , it showed all the secret
        compartments also.

        Ive decided to incorporate secret compartments into some of the
        pieces Im building also.
        and now, Ive got 12 jewelry box's to build by Christmas.
        as well as about the same number of puzzle Burrs.

                are those mitered corner dovetails at the corners of the chest?

                  This is an odd project, but one I had to do. We have been taking care of my wife's mother for 6 years. She had a stroke and Alzeimers and died Easter week. Her husband died about 20 years ago and had donated his body to science and was cremated. One of their daughters died last year and her body was cremated. The family wanted the ashes of all three to be buried together, so I built this cremains box from a cedar tree from the family farm. The cremains of each person is separated. The lid of the box is basswood as I could not get enough clear cedar to carve the design - I'm not good enough to carve in knots yet.

                  The box is designed to fit inside a burial vault and is finished with Tung oil and wax.

                  • 18 GHz Brush

                    I got me a bandsaw and this is my first project using it. Materials used:

                    1.8 GHz AMD Athlon processor
                    Cherry wood
                    Carnauba wax
                    Superglue

                    The cat seems to like it. It's effective and and pretty fast - it operates at 1.8 GHz after all.
