Decided to make some extra lid boxes. Wanted to try out putting reeds and flutes on the sides and top of the boxes as decoration, same idea as the Ring Box that I previously made. However, these ones houses the bottom panel in the side walls, in stead of the side walls being housed in the bottom lid.
Wood is African Mahogany.

Was getting a bit fed up with using a loose pencil and sliding squire to make pencil lines on my work, so I decided to make one as a marking gauge.
Wood is Rosewood, which is a hard, dense wood, so some of the shaping and chiseling took longer than usual with the project. I also decided to add some decorations, to break the empty space.

During a visit to Tokyo Japan, I bought some calligraphy supplies. However, I don't like all the items just lying about, so I decided to make a Japanese 'Shodo Station', using traditional woodworking hand tools.
Also gave me an excuse to practice with my molding planes :)

Making a ring box from yellow wood, since I had no place to put my existing set of rings. Using traditional hand tools to make the project.
I decided to make a lid box, and add some carving decorations to the top of the lid.
