Have been following this tutorial and am very impressed. I love the way the top looks like wind blown sand.

Will be trying my hand at one of these soon.

Thank you all for taking time to comment.
@Scrappy-I was hoping that I could express that effect.Sand dunes,or the beach.Thanks.
@Whitedog-Perhaps I will if there is enough interest.It would be much faster to do than this one :-)

Wow! This step… “carving” the box… that puts a lot of art on top of the fine box-making craft… and I assume this is what you mean when you call it an “Art Box”. (IMHO, “shaping” doesn’t say enough… to say you ‘shaped the box’ just doesn’t evoke an image of the process you used or of the results you achieved.) I hope this comes across correctly, but I’d say that in this shaping/carving step, you took that ‘nice’ box and made it beautiful (and unique).

Well Andy! l don’t know if this is the last step your going to show for these boxes. But l have to say the detail in these tutorials will allow me to build one, however l’m sure l’ll make some mistakes along the way but it’ll be worth it because l’ll also teach myself through these tutorials new methods that will become very handy on other projects. You should have been a tech teacher, l say this because l’m a Facility Maintenance Mechanic with a school board in Canada and l’ve received help from tech teachers in the past one of whom was a cabinetmaker for a sailboat manufacture. Great job! l look forward to seeing more tutorials , THANKS

Andy, I have been making boxes for a few years. I have been wondering what to do to continue to change and grow.
Thanks for the inspiration and detailed discussion. My angle grinder had a Guard??
