My boxes to hold samples of Arkansas woods are nearly complete, and I'll be able to apply an oil finish this afternoon. The boxes open in the manner of a triptych, but instead of being an enclosure for religious images, they serve as  enclosures for the display of our common woods.

In medieval churches a triptych would have served as an altar piece proclaiming sacred its contents. That same point is made here.

These boxes have been evolving in my imagination for several years, so it is good to actually see that what I've been thinking of is finally made real.

More usual triptychs are shown in the images below.

Make, fix, create, and extend to others the likelihood of learning likewise.
