Surely you are all familiar with Tyler Morris and his amazing talent.  Tyler is a well-known and much respected local woodworker (as well as a loyal Sears Trostel customer).  He designed and builds the corbels that we have in stock here at our retail location and was the mastermind behind this beautiful handcrafted beetle kill pine box sitting at the front desk:
 

 
Notice the way the grain wraps around the box?  Well, that's no coincidence, as "making a wood box with continuous grain shows that the maker selected the box parts with care and pride."   Read Tyler's full article, Building Boxes with "Continuous Grain" here for instruction on how you too can create a box that showcases your love of fine woodworking and be sure to take a look at Tyler's box the next time you are in the store.
