This blog will show progress on an ArtBox I am building for a client.
In September I received an email from a gentleman named Sean asking if I was interested in making a custom box to display his wrist watch collection. I said I typically dont do commission work for several reasons, but if he wanted to send me details I would look it over before deciding.
We worked out the bugs and I agreed to make a box to hold eight watches.
The color of the wood and the grain were important as well as how it would look finished. Bloodwood was selected for its rich color and its non-porous grain which would give a smooth finish. The panel for the lid as well as the handle would be western quilted maple.
Check out my website and leave a comment on the blog page. I need feedback from anyone who has the time. I would appreciate any criticism so I can make changes as needed. If you have a website you would like me to link to send it along and I will consider it. Also see if you arent already on the LINKS page and perhaps one of your comments was used in the Gallery. Click on a picture to get a larger view and at the bottom of the page you will find the comments.
Thanks for your help.
