A beautiful box by Dan Waingrow.

A few weeks ago I published a simple segmentation pattern of a flag graphic. Dan Waingrow took the pattern and made something special from it. The annual Conejo Valley Woodworkers Association picnic was coming up and he needed something for the auction.

Dan used the piece as the lid for a nice hard wood box. He used walnut, maple and bloodwood for the segmented top. Notice the nice spline joints at the corners of the box. He painted the backer of the segmentation white to highlight the stars. Dan say the box was a big hit at the show and I can see why. He did a fantastic job taking an ordinary pattern and turning it into something very special. 
I wanted to share the pictures he sent me and encourage everyone to make changes to the patterns I post. If you see something that makes a pattern unique and personal then by all means make the change. Thanks for sharing the pictures Dan.
