My Norwegian Tine

I just finished the "Nordic-Style Bentwood Box' that was featured in your Dec-Feb 2009 magazine. I am 64 years old, and It was the best project I have ever attempted.  My hat is off to Jim Anderson, thank you.
  I had to resaw black walnut flooring which I have never attempted before, it worked out fine.  I used red oak for the top and horses.  I made my own tray from sheet metal I found in the heating and a/c ducting section at my local home improvement center.  I used two pieces of angle iron to form the tray and then soldered the ends in place.  I brought my two burner BarB-Q in the garage to heat the water and steam the walnut before bending.
I bought a chair caning kit for $19 for the cane I needed, I now have enough for several hundred boxes.  I cant wait to start my next Tine.  Again, Thank you very much,  Bill Ferry
