This poplar story box , designed by Sheila Landry, is the most detailed and intricate project I’ve had the pleasure of working on. Made from 1/4 and 1/2 in thick stock, I used a #2/0 r blade to get the fine detail and leave a clean cut on the backside of the work. Working in such a soft wood I was nervous the entire time that I’d cut through something I didn’t want to and luckily I didn’t. :) Normally I don’t do pieces this involved, but now that I have I may do more. . . but not right away.

-- The wood often tells me what it wants to be... great... now the voices in my head have company....;-P

That is absolutely wonderful! You did a FABULOUS job on it! :) Yes – poplar would be a bit fragile, but it looked like you nailed it. I love seeing people enjoy what I come up with. Congratulations on it!
