This posting was made by Fine Woodworking and it is quite remarkable. This “box of money” is carved from one piece of wood and hand painted! Check it out!
“It’s tough to make real money from your work, but I found a guy who is dong the next best thing. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen the step-by-step photos myself.
His name is Randall Rosenthal, and he lives in East Hampton, NY. Everything he does is carved from a single block of wood, and hand-painted. Here are the rest of the photos the “Old Money” sculpture, plus more info about the artist, and here is his own website, which includes a gallery of his amazing work.”
