Boxes

Everybody needs a box or three.  I make one the exact size of a dollar bill to encourage kids to save.  I call this one my rainy day box.

To make the boxes I process the lumber myself for the box sides.  Normally I use a four corner grain match, which means the grain wraps the box.  For the tops I either use solid lumber or veneer.  The veneer comes from all over the world.

Bio

I took an early retirement from the telephone company in 2000 to build a new house and shop in beautiful northwest Arkansas.  Retirement also allowed me time to run my sawmill.  I custom saw for many people who bring any where from one log to a dozen logs.  Many times these logs would have ended up in a burn pile.

 

When not sawing, I work in my shop where “I just make things”.  I primarily make products out of wood but I also do some metal work.  Production work is boring so I like the one off designs.

 

As a maker, my goal is to make items that are both useful and beautiful.  When I accomplish both, it satisfies my soul.
