More Boxes for Beads of Courage

Five more lidded boxes for 
the Mid-South Woodturners Guild
Beads of Courage donation project.

The lids are reversible.

I created these as part of my
demonstration on segmented boxes
presented during MSWG's Oktoberfest 2016.

You can view the You Tube video 
from that presentation

Published in American Woodturner

My Multiaxis Tablet Stand article has been published
in the June 2016 issue of American Woodturner.

(Vol. 31, no. 3 - Journal of the American Association of Woodturners)

And what an honor to have it published
in the issue celebrating AAW's 30th anniversary.

This is Julie's iPad resting against the top level of her prop stand.

This photo shows her iPad resting on one of the lower levels.

(overhead lighting can cause glare -
 the multiaxis design allows for different screen angles)

These tablet stands were finished using 
Annie Sloan chalk paint and clear wax.

Thank you AAW for sharing my article with your readers.
