I’ll Do Better Tomorrow

The idea started in my head.  I transferred it to some graph paper.  The joy of seeing the idea travel its course and now be a real, nearly finished project, is immense.  I am making two boxes, with the same design.  They look vastly different than my other boxes, but were not appreciably more difficult.

I did learn from the experience though.  I am better at doing straight inlays.  This makes me want to try curved inlays, and then shapes.  There is something strangely fascinating and satisfying about inlays.  I am not sure I can describe it.  Maybe some of the blog readers, who are also woodworkers, could describe it better than I?

All I know is that I want to do a bunch more of it.  That being said, I have not finished the boxes yet.  I need to make one lid.  Then I will sand them, softening all the edges, and making it ready for some tung oil.  I probably could have done those steps today, but I got distracted by the Boise St vs. VA Tech football game.

I can really only think of one more thought, about these boxes.  I have considered that it may look better with a padauk lid, as the wenge lid may be too much wenge.  The problems is two fold.  I don’t have more padauk for a lid, and I really like wenge.  I guess that second one isn’t really a problem, just a fact.   Perhaps I will run up to Iowa City tomorrow and see if they have any padauk scraps?

Wow, DJ Harper from Boise St, on 3rd and one, runs 71 yards for a touchdown.  I really can’t focus on the blog tonight.  I am sorry.  I think I am going to go and watch the game.  It is just too darn exciting.  I will do better tomorrow.

I do have one more thought.  Does anyone have names suggestions for these tiny boxes?  I am open to suggestions.  Of course, any suggestions will have to be approved by the boxes themselves, and possibly several of my tools.
