Almost a year ago a customer sent a halfmoon box back to me for repair. It had fallen off a shelf and hit the floor, but from the parts I received it looked like it had exploded!
When the parts arrived, I couldn't imagine how I was going to put them all back together. Normally, when constructing a halfmoon box there is a step by step sequence that I follow. But, due to the nature of the breakage, many of these parts had to be reassembled at the same time, and in a different order than I would normally do. After thinking about it off and on for almost a year, I finally tackled it a couple of weeks ago.
After this, I had to fill in a few places where chips were missing, sand the entire box, oil twice and buff. Here's the finished piece:
Not too bad. What do you think?
This is the first post on my new website, and my first blog, ever.
I originally made my website using Microsoft FrontPage. Once I became familiar with it, it worked well and produced a pretty good website. Some time ago Microsoft stopped supporting FrontPage, but it still worked fine. As of today, my website host, GoDaddy, will no longer be supporting FrontPage. So, it was time to make a new one. I created this version using Weebly. Again, it took some getting used to. But, I think the result is pretty good, and I finally did some much-needed updating. Please take a look and let me know what you think!
