Box challenge - happy 1-1-11
I have not posted anything in december, as I have been busy with the boxes, which I hope will be evident in the steady stream of regular posts this month.
I start 2011 with Lost Horizon.
The second picture shows the back-pared onlays in the process of being cut-out from an overlaid stencil for positioning.Sanskrit..
om mani padme hum
....tooled over with Eternal knots.
You will be seeing more boxes with back pared onlays. Planned correctly, they can save a lot of time.
James Hilton also took the time to inscribe one of the more memorable lines from the high lama of Shangri-la
"...When the strong have devoured each other, the Christian ethic may at last be fulfilled and the meek shall inherit the earth."
Happy New Year everybody.....PDB wishes the best for all in 2011, but really I'm just biding my time waiting for 2012 ....the year of the dragon....
