Bible Box 3.

This is the last piece i have been commissioned to make, the design  differs to the other two boxes i have made as does the the timber i have used.

The timber i used for this piece of work is Oak which came from a house undergoing restoration  most of the roof timbers in this house originally came from a ship of some sort,the reason i know this is because of the carpenters marks that were shown to me by the tradesmen who were performing the restoration. The smell of this timber when i was cutting it was remarkable and unlike any timber I've cut before.

I also want to incorporate some antique olive wood into the lid of this piece which i obtained from an old church this seems fitting as the piece is meant for a bible.Hopefully i will post some more progress shots next week.
Id also like to take this opportunity to than Anne from Petit Bonheur for presenting me with this wonderful award i have to say i was a little surprised to say the least and am very touched that you consider my blog is worthy of it. Many Thanks!

Choosing 6 blogs to pass this award onto is no easy feat so id like to share it with everyone who
                                      holds a passion and creative flair for making miniatures.

Have a great weekend everyone      Tony.
