Here are a Quartet of bandsaw boxes… designed by Lois Ventura… Minnow… from memory… 3 in Tasmanian Blackwood and one in New Guinea Rosewood… the flocking is royal blue… All ordered from one person.. with another Lazy Larry.[She has ordered quite a lot from me].The small [ stubbie…13 oz] bottle of XXXX Gold Beer is for perspective…last pic is a shot of the making of these and a small tease of what is to come.

-- Be safe.

unless your beer bottles are tiny, these are pretty big!!! and thats a tight curve!!!

well done – next thing should be a band sawn box for storing 24 pack

-- The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep...

As usual, Ventura is an inspiration and you are the perspiration!
Wonderful boxes, Larry.
