These sign are finally ready to go.

Thank you to Michael for being so patient with me as he said no rush required. Just getting them packaged up and on their way to their new home. The two similar signs are outdoor signs with appropriate finish, the really awesome one is and indoor sign I believe for the foyer to his home. 

This one is Black walnut frame with Curly Hickory insert

The portrait turned out nice I think since there wasn't a photo of this awesome individual. 
Purpleheart frame, cherry interlocks with hard maple insert.

Quite photogenic I think,

strait mitered corner. 

similar ones together to embellish this mans property's gates. 

I agree completely with this next one. 

Damn that dude was sharp as a tack 

purpleheart wood, cherry corner locks, maple sign insert

Rounded internal "miter" locking joint

Michael its been a pleasure, and I hope you enjoy them. Please let me know if I can something for you again.

Bamboo cutting board

This is a nice small bamboo cutting board. 

The unit has a rotating handle that lets you stand it like a sign if you wanted to display it instead of use it.

I can engrave pretty much anything you would want on them. 

The back side I left alone.

Ready to use. 

email me billsbilletboxes@gmail.com please.

First small relief map I am making of Lake Geneva

This is an 11 inch version for prototype purposes. Obviously no sanding or anything done finishing wise yet in this one,. 

Real one will be larger and more detail. 

Just an experiment cut before initial production.

Engagement Ring boxes

These nice little boxes are for someones wedding rings. The two chambers are due to the fact they have a carbon ring and a gold ring. Some in process images. 

Machining a "lug" so I can hold it in the vice
Inlays are inserted and glued in place.

Start of the 3d profile

My favorite part is when the inlay starts to come through the top side. 

This one is curly Paela and Ash burl in the center

This is the second one

Walnut and 1/4 sawn Sycamore

inside of the lids are domed as well. 

don't mind the hairy legs and slippers. -4 degrees this morning

The wide edge is the hinge side

She is going to be pretty once sanded and finished out. 

Need something for that special day in your life, or special person perhaps?

drop me a note I would love to do something for you too.
