    Hoyt, are you quite sure that thing will float? It is quite attractive in any case.

    Is a wedding box the same as a "keepsake box", or possibly a "donation box"? Guys like me don't know about about that kind of thing. I Live, I learn.

    I had to look it up as well. It's used at the reception for guests to put their cards in. Could have some fun with a false bottom, Hoyt. Is that how you're funding your boat build?:eek:

    1. The wedding box will float, being made from southern baldcypress.
    2. It is for cards at the reception. After that the new couple can use it as they wish.
    3. This is the second one I built this year. Before March I had never heard of them.
    4.One must be careful when in the presence of a false bottom. You never know what it is attached to.
    5. No. :)

    Gooday & 'hoy' & hello to all. - Hoy - we've had 3 or 4 of them flying around our front yard - under the 'Rain-tree' for at least 3 hrs now all about 100 mm wide (4"). They are almost hovering stationary - but are still flying. They come & sip some of the water & honey we put out for our parrots to drink while they are out flying around for the day. The 'Ulysses' is in fact our 'emblem' for - Far NOrth Queensland - here in Australia. Just stunning to watch.

    Nice box of 'bald-wood' & nice logo also. Ciao & have a grand day. james

    Thanks, James. We have http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_Fritillary in great numbers here due to the passion vines we have in abundance. The blue one on the box matches the ones on the wedding invitations that were sent out.

    Hi,

    Yes, I feel your pain. No rain all year long the 10 plus inches in a few days.

    Well, the way the wind is blowing you could convert you new boat to sailing power and do great!!!!
