Stumpy Nubs has a presence at Lumberjocks.com. A lot of people gave him crap when he started out blogging there many years ago, but I and many others gave him encouragement. He's done a great job with it. I post there as Dark Lightning, and have published many projects.

I just checked out the site and there seems to be lots of useful content.

Hats off to this guy for his excellent methodology. If only all YouTubers were this rational and articulate.

Good link Hermes. So much for conventional wisdom.

Here is another vid that describes a method for intricate inlays.  This one may be of interest to our maker of elegant boxes; Tank.

The first box I did for my mother in laws ashes turned out to be way too big. So I made another one which fits a lot better.

Elegant. The little claw feet are a nice touch.  :thumbsup:

It hasn't got any handles so the feet let you get your fingers underneath to lift it safely. The last thing you'd want to do is drop them!

I have quite a big bag of old coins, mainly pre-Euro, from different countries. They are remnants from countless trips to various parts of the world for the last 51 years. I am reluctant to just throw them out, so would appreciate any non-rude suggestions of what I can do with them. One idea I have is to solder them into an undulating sheet that can be a precursor to a hammered sculpture. I could also use them as metallic accent elements in paintings. Any other suggestions?

Are they of sufficiently varied colours to do an artwork with?

i could never do that

ive got coins from everywhere. precommunist china, victorian pennies, kenyan shillings, borneo, nazi germany, ancient rome, medieval england . . .

i would find it very hard to destroy any of those, even if the result was a thing of beauty.

its a weakness of mine, old stuff
