this is a box i made for my LJ friend SCHUMMIE .
he posted it recently ,
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/24848
and this was supposed to be a tutorial ,
about the build .
although i took pictures of the whole process ,
i can’t find them anywhere in my computer .

so basicaly cut the parts as shown ,
glue them all together ,
sand them all down ,
finish them ,
using every product available ,
sand again ,
try something else ,
sand again , etc . etc. etc. ,
for 2 months !
then send it to holland ,
and hope it gets there in one piece .
HENRIE ,
PLEASE KNOW THIS AS MY HEALING PRAYER FOR YOU .

happy holidays to all !

David,
Not only is the box a beautiful piece of art but it will be treasured by it’s recipient as a thoughtful gift.
You are one of a kind, David! The world could use a few more like you.

This a beauty David. You have a big heart. I admire your generosity, friendliness and humor as much as I admire your craftsmanship. By the way, I’m not feeling so good today…........LOL.

David, this is a gorgeous box. I have often said that the story behind a project is often as important as the project itself. This is certainly no exception. Your kindness and generosity are qualities that serve as examples for the rest of us to follow.

You are indeed one-of-a-kind.

They didn’t leave me anything to say David, except yuppers, what they said. Love ya babe.” You make me feel like dancin, Dancin the night away”. I wish I could, but I’m earth bound. If I only had your wings. Mike
