A Very Special Box


Recommended Posts

Sorry for the loss of your dad Paul.  I think that it is a gift that given the chance as a woodworker, a project like this can create some healing in the process.

I think the maple was a great choice with the ray's behind the cross.

Very, very nice, Paul! Love the sunburst behind the cross. 

Making Alison's urn was a very cathartic experience for me. I know I've never made anything that was more appreciated. 

I know the feeling Mick, Linda's casket was a traumatic experience.

As for an update I messed up the four sided grain match tonight so I will be getting a chance to redu that tomorrow ^_^

We've all been there.  I recently reversed the plywood show edges on a part of a shop cab carcass.  Really aggravating.  I had marked them all for orientation and then just flat-lined during glue up.

beautiful work Paul that will really pop with some finish on it, and i'll chime in on that style of clamps @Chet, i had some custom made many years ago by a friend and i much prefer them to the band clamps, i think they are easier to put on and can be set before the glue up among other reasons, mine are made of aluminum and use 1/4" threaded rod
