Here is today’s attempts at my new skill.

The box is a pencil holder.
The plan came from a scrollsaw book.
The wood is my precious willow from the woodpile.
The joints are part of the plan, cut out with the scrollsaw.

This is my second attempt at this process.
I can already “look back” at previous projects to see how much I’ve improved.
(thanks Martin for this wonderful journal)

You’re not a quitter that’s for sure. These joints look great!

thanks :)

Now I have to build a shelf or something for this set to go on.
Hey—I built a set!! The paper tray, the paperclip box, and the pencil holder!! A matching set! :)

Another nice box, the joints are so much tighter, keep at it Deb, you’ll put us all to shame, you already put me to shame :(

I have a long way to go re: the joinery but, hey, I’m proud of my accomplishments so far (it’s only day 2!)

I owe it all to the Willow. I want my house filled with this stuff. I do LOVE it.

And a grand pencil box it is! I for one like the box joints and the look of it.

Can’t wait to see more Debbie!

Looks great…this is proof that you can get better with practice….and a bit of patience. I really like the willow. I may take a closer look at my neighbor tree next ice storm. He is thinking of cutting it down due to the damage from the last storm.

Very nice, Debbie. I’m a big fan of finger joints. The modified spacing is cool.
