I had a great weekend with the Wabash Valley Woodworkers. There were about 30 members attending my box making class, and that was a great turnout for two snowy days in rural Indiana. I want to thank all the woodworkers for their courtesy and attention.

My demonstration box is almost done. I made a lid support from steel strapping and nylon line, and used rough sawn and weathered oak for the top panel. It is fun to work with a variety of textures, both smoothly crafted and rough, the latter, from the initial milling and the effects of weather. I will do some sanding on edges, rout with a 45 degree chamfer on the bottom edge and finish with Deft Danish Oil.
