Re: [BKARTS] Clam Shell Box



There is furniture grade ply-wood, I have some 3/8" five ply in
cedar with a cherry outer layer that makes good boxes, but
nothing in my scraps is the size you need. Look in local
wood-crafters shops for something like this.

=====
Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
