Today I experimented with chip carving (more at my blog) and the result was this box.

It is currently in my living room but who knows where it might end up by the end of the day.

Wood: Willow
Size: 9” x 5” x 3” high.

Only two remotes, you must be multi-media deficient.

But nice box.

An interesting story. We were looking for the remotes at our home. Looked everywhere and finally went out to the dumpster in the driveway to look there. I emptied out all of the bags and I found a metal school lunchbox. So I picked it up and it rattled. All of our remotes were inside.

Our foster sox had put the remotes in the lumchbox and threw it into the trash. My wife emptied the trash can and I hauled it to the dimpster.

Luckly it wasn’t trash day.

I like this a lot, Debbie. Simple box and simple but expressive carvings.

2 remotes: we are in rural Ontario – no cable, no dish… just 3 stations and a dvd player.

interesting story re: your remotes (good detective work by the way) .. and what was the message behind the disposal of the remotes?

thank you Karson, Dennis & Jeff for taking the time to have a peek and to comment.
It’s simple but I like it. Not sure what that says about me though ;)

The message on the remotes was put them on top of the fireplace mantel next time.

Kinda half expect to see a picture of Deb holding the rabbit ears on the TV just so, to get any reception at all. No Deb, little to left, no more to right, no up a little! Now down. THAT’S IT! Now, don’t move for an hour please. This is the one where Lucy smacks Dezi. ;-)

Wonderful piece Deb. Your carving is getting very impressive. How is the stockpile of Willow running? Low? Thanks for sharing your piece with us. Can’t wait to see more!

Chip, you have it about right.

Our willow supply is still ok, we cut up 2 chunks last night, giving me some more material to play with :D
I’ll just let it sit for a couple days and then… well, I have no idea what I’ll make. Probably another plant stand to start with.
And maybe a birdhouse since I seem to be good at that without even knowing it!!

Thanks for the kind words about the carving.

Very nice Debbie, I bet the birds would love a chip carved birdhouse.

Only 3 channels? Reminds me of the dark ages when I was a kid. No wonder you need a hobby!

well, there’s actually 4 channels but the one is pretty much a blizzard all of the time so basically unwatchable.

And I can’t get cable—BUT I do have high speed, as of last summer so we are moving up in the world!!
and we do have running water (I have been asked that from kids who live only 1/2 hour away from us in a “big city” of 100,000). Running water. Geez…

Debbie – Do I have this correct? Woodburning (i.e pyrography), hand cut dovetails, chip carving, mixed media, & rustic. What’s next for your?! Great work.
