A couple medium sized boxed I just finished....


I used Purple Heart wood on these. It has a very nice deap purple color that the pictures do not do justice.

I got the idea of using purple wood after staring at the MILF for 8 hours every day...

New hobby? Or did a action figure die?

Wow!,. when I read that thread topic, I at first thought you were making a post about that "Male chastity device" again!!

Glad to hear that YOUR wood isn't turning purple.

That looks like the box where my mom keeps my dad's balls.

Check out some "purpleheart" wood for your next project. It is quite unique looking.

Is Quietshootr just a celebrity endorser?
Or does he really use your hardwood?

He helps out around the shop. Once my wood is a nice purple "hue" he is the one that rubs the oils on in till it gets all glossy.

I WON'T say 'Nice WOOD...' !

OK, 'NICE WOOD BOXES!'

That Purple Wood Rifle Stock is damn nice, too.

I found that it didnt like to take the true oil as well as the walnut. If I remember right there is 21 coats of hand rubbed oil on that baby. Thats a whole lot of rubbing!

sgtar15,

Are you selling these boxes or just making them for yourself? If so how much are they going for and what sizes can you do?

Just wondering.

Dude, you gotta relax your grip!

Seriously, I've made some panel grips for my wife's 92F and for my Para Ord. That purpleheart is some beautiful stuff--just don't use if for a salad bowl or cutting board...it's mildly poisonous

Checking back on this...

Two of the Drivers I work with are woodworkers. One is Professional Grade, the other is his close second.
I've seen several different kinds of wood they've displayed in the showcase at the Base, and some other work they've done. What a great thing it is to see what can be done with wood.

The 'second' guy made some wood handled sticks the Drivers use to change the signage display by reaching up from the seat to press the buttons on the display panel without having to get up from the Driver's seat.
Novel concept and idea and he sold a LOT of 'em!
Mine has the Purple wood handle.

Another wood I like is the Zebrawood.
Nice work there, sgtar15.

Nice Sarge, you may want to get a velvet flock kit for the interior of the jewelry box, so your jewels have somewhere soft to lay in

My WOOD turned purple within days of my vasectomy. TRUE STORY !!

"My wood has turned purple"
