Latest project. Yet another box. This one made of a new wood for me,
Australian wormy chestnut.
Beautiful wood, and beautiful work. There is something I love about "boxes",
but don't get a chance to make them often, which is probably a good thing
for the available space remaining .... one of these days.
Is Australian Chestnut readily available?
My lumber yard had it as a one-time purchase. I'm not sure that
botanically it is a true chestnut (probably someone more knowledgeable
than me will pitch in). There's some online info at
The flyer above sez that "Australian Chestnut" refers to a few Eucalyptus
species; true chestnuts are of the Castenea genus, and don't grow in Oz
Beautiful! And I'm touched by your generosity towards your son's teacher.
We're trying to remember to say thanks (Gift Certificates) to our kid's
teachers too. They work so hard, get paid so little, and often spend their
own money on things the school should pay for!
Why such important people are paid so little is always lost on me...
