ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD! Looks like a great project. The 3D depth effect is always amazing with your boxes.

Martyn – If you hadn’t posted any of your previous amazing works – one would say this is an impossible project – but no doubt you’ll get-r-done. Looking forward to seeing the results….

I don’t know if the drugs are legal or not Dave, that could be some of the street from what it does to my optic lobe. lol I do know Martyn’s boxes are highly addictive.

If you are coming up with this, and Im guessing hypnotoad is a “futurama” reference, I’m not sure you are safe around power tools! Just kidding, that is awesome, and will be truly an impressive piece of woodworking. Good luck.

I would offer my sympathy for the devl Martyn, but I don’t think he requires any (favorite stones song though). Obviously purpleheart, (ebony?) what wood for the yellow? Looking forward to the end result.

That would definitely be a challenge to make. I can hardly wait to see the actual box . . . good thing I don’t have virtigo! LOL
