Hi Mick, sounds like you and Heather are having a great time. I popped into Pauls last night to show him the cigar box lol.It just needs the final touches now , a good sanding and some varnish should do the trick. I hope to have it ready for next weekend.

Hi all
Just gave the box a good wash down with some white spirit which will bring the gain out of the wood. Will give it a coat of varnish tomorrow and see how it looks.
