  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

Cocobolo Box

I had a few problems with this one. The grain match is not as good as I wanted. But the wood is just too pretty to have tossed it in the "lessons learned" box. I save every single piece that doesn't make it. You only get to see the ones that pass my final approval. I'm my worst critic. I have given awau=y boxes to visiting tourists. They pick up a box, to them looks perfect. Even after I explained what is wrong they want to buy it. I can't sell them if they are not perfect, so I make someone happy. This one is sitting on a Koa stand. Hand chased threads.
