I really need to make a trip over the mountains to get some of your curly walnut/maple.
I come over there about every 2 or 3 months- in fact I was in Bellevue 2 weeks ago.

I've got a ton of regular walnut, but I wouldn't be able to say no to some curly stuff.

What finish did you use on them? Whatever you did brings out the curl quite well.

All us Pacific Northwesterners need to have a little get together. Maybe a wood swap or our own mini project swap. Nice boxes btw.

General wipe on- and then antique wax- lids do not have wax yet. The wax can be gloss our satin- I chose satin- feels so smooth.
The curly walnut is nice but spendy- the maple is pretty cheap- I just bought a pallet of guitar blank rejects- nice wood for boxes.

Sounds like a great Idea- when and where- ellensburg in the spring- anybody that has not seen a mt. sheep can go down the Yakima river gorge and see a bunch......

Where did you find the guitar blank pallets? And curly walnut is expensive, but definitely looks worth it. How spendy is spendy? We talking like $15-20/bdft?

Depending on when/where I may be up to heading somewhere.

Depends on how curly- a lot of it goes to knife, pistol grips, fishing nets and bows- They are crazy about it. How much do you need?

After christmas- one of us needs to start a thread on a PNW get together- does not matter where to me- it would be fun. Lets just make somewhere where all of us do not have to enjoy your wonderful traffic. :censored::thumbdown:

Nice work. Such beautiful woods! Makes me feel like anything I've used is boring to the max.

I'm up here in PNW as well. From Richland (Tri-Cities) but currently residing in Tacoma area. My work space in on the east side of the state though, so I have to plan ahead on projects!

Mike those are sweet! That curly wood is beautiful. I'm in for a get together as well. Matter of fact I was talking with Steve about heading over to his shop after the holidays.

Great boxes, and I'm sure I'll enjoy mine for a long time :laughing:
