GWhit, the boxes are awesome but your granddaughter is beautiful. I like your outdoor workshop,no worry of sawdust getting into your lungs and plenty of sunshine and fresh air. What a way to go,do you take your saw and tools with you everytime you travel or is that your permanent home?....Mike

Great job. Your daughter and granddaughter must be proud. I also admire your workshop. It must draw a crowd when folks see you at work. Do you travel all over the country?

Beautiful box!!! And, a question about your nice shop there.... The stand you have your saw on... is the saw just set on that stand, or fastened to it? The reason I asked, is this thread Need some advice on a saw has someone looking at possibly buying that same saw, and perhaps you could offer him/her your thoughts on that saw. I would love to have a shop like yours, when the sawdust piles up to much, drive to a new campground!!! Maybe someday I will join ya, until then, I have to be satisfied with seasonal camping in a pop-up trailer!

A lovely way to spend you time, cutting under the sky and moving on when you get the whim. I jealous

As others have said that box is brag worthy, however can I just offer a small tip.
When using slot head screws, dress them eg, align the slots all going the same way with the grain. Little things like that just lift pieces to the next level.

BTW, here in Oz, we call retired travellers "old Farts in Caravan Parks"

Thanks for all the good words and encouragement. Thanks John B for mentioning the screws, I never would have thought of that.
Our motorhome hase been "home" for over 6 years and we've been to all but 6 of the States since retiring. Now that we're slowing down a little and staying put for a month or more at a time I can learn the scrollsaw.
Everytime I look at this forum and links from it I see more I want to try.
