    ENTRY NUMBER 7
    Title: Pencil box
    Entry Section: Rectangular boxes
    Entry Type: Experienced
    Box dimensions: 190mm wide x 280mm deep x 70mm high
    Intended Use: Pencil box
    Made from: Fijian Kauri (Agathis Moorei) carcass: tambour made from
    artists pencils glued to Fijian Kauri strips, mounted on cotton duck;
    tambour tracks lined with velvet.
    Finish: Sanded to 800 grit, finished with white shellac and Livos
    Kunos oil.

    Special details: Agathis Moorei was named in honour of the first
    director of the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, Charles Moore, and the
    tree from which this box was made was planted by him in 1853. It died
    prematurely in 2007, due to the roosting habits of the Grey-headed
    Flying Fox, and had to be removed. It was milled and distributed to a
    number of woodworkers and artists to make commemorative pieces, which
    will be exhibited and sold to raise funds for the gardens. I was
    fortunate enough to be invited to participate in this project.

    Wow! great boxes. Hard to pick a winner from those, they all look winners to me. Great to see wooden hinges being used more in box making, adds a lot of character to the project. Well done guys.
    Reality is no background music.
    Cheers John
