Here's a little something different. It's a homemade Japanese Puzzle Box

Until the clocks for forward on the 25th March I don't have any daylight to work in when I get home. So work on the shield is restricted for the weekends if I can find the time.

But here's a little something you can easily make indoors. It's an 8 step Japanese Puzzle Box. I made this back in December 2011, it only takes a couple of hours to do. It's made from Basswood bought from my local Hobbycraft and superglue. I used a set of plans bought from Homemade Puzzles
This makes an ideal gift, and also a nice way to secure some personal possessions.

Let's continue

It's been a while since I've done any work on the Hylian Shield, but today I picked it up again. The edge is now nice and crisp, and I found my green masking tape had the exact width of the edge. This means I now have a nice line to sand up to.
I've begun building up the top side of the edging. It's going well and I'm hoping to get it done soon.
