I keep busy when not working on the house still. Here are three new boxes I made from recycled Brazilian Walnut (Ipey) and Australian Jarrah.

The first one is the Jarrah, (with cameo) the second and third are the Ipey.
Both are very dense, heavy wood.

Ipey is also used for decks---Looks good as a furniture wood too.

SHOPPING HINT: If any of you go looking for Ipe at your lumber store, you'll sound cool and professional if you pronounce it "E-pay". (Like E-Bay) :thumbsup:

I learned this years ago by being laughed at for pronouncing it like "HYPE" with an I.

By the way..... these boxes ARE for sale if anyone is interested.

(3 cats box is gone)

And..... yes! They ARE my trick boxes, locked tight, and will only open if you know the secret.

I'm sure your are trickier to open than my humble attempts----Only took a 14 year old 5 minutes to puzzle out my last attempt. And I thought it was good.---
