These are three ring boxes turned in 2009, didn’t sell at the flea market and were stored away ever since. Now that the addiction of piercing and carving has me I have been busy rejuvinating them. Also tried my hand at testuring and using some gold and copper paint. Pic 1, 3 and 5 are the new look, pic 2, 4 and 6 as they were.
Have already sold 1 and 3. Pete, haven’t got a bed in the shed but might sling a hammock.

These are great Bob, especially seeing the before & after treatment. I knew it was only a matter of time untill you got the paint tints out
You realy are turning this recycle path into a “Bob Collins make over programme” all of your own.
I keep looking now for the next installment,
Fantastic Mate :)))
