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.

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

Thanks Spence, sorry for the late reply!
Clarkey, thats very nice of you to say so. I am only good at conveying info if its on a subject I am compassionate about, like this one.Thanks.
