    Jewelry Box

    "What's the best kind of wood?"

    Answer: "Free Wood!"

    A friend gave me a bunch of wood, including some teak which I used for a variety of things, including some cutting boards.

    Some of the wood is a species that I couldn't even guess what it is - but some of it had some nice figure and it would polish up nicely. I chose some of the nicest wood and made a jewelry box for his wife as thanks for the gift. Here's how it came out.

    You can see the grain running around the box. I made a tray for the inside. I videoed the making of the box and posted the videos on my website (warning: the video is in three parts, each almost an hour). The production has some problems - I have to set up the camera and then show the work. If the camera is a bit off I don't know it until I review the video.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    Absolutely beautiful. Well done, Mike! Don’t be surprised if he gives you a lot more wood

    If I weren't so far away I'd "steal" your friend.
