Acacia box

G’day Carl,

Your videos inspired me to take some wattle that I had to cut down because it was growing under the power lines. It was sitting in the front paddock for about 6 months, dragged it up to the house for firewood and noticed it was dry, not too cracked…perfect for turning!!

This is my first attempt at making a box with lid from the one piece, using your techniques. Better to practice on the free stuff before buying good wood, eh?

Keep up the good work.
