Greg, there are worse obsessions than oak boxes…I just can’t think of them right now. Interesting turn of events as your boxes take a journey toward the rustic side of life lately. Looks like you are having a blast making this group of boxes. Are you using sand to blast with or some softer material? Keep boxing and keep posting.

An interesting look.
They kind of make me think of unshelled peanuts.
You really have a way with texture.

Thanks guys…! I have declared this week “oak appreciation week” and now it is time to use some other woods. Ha…!
Appreciated Klaus. I am glad the oak and wenge catches your attention.

Big Al…I don’t have many obsessions but my woodworking has definitely been at the top of my list for as long as I can remember. The rustic look is not my all time favorite look…but I feel variety is important when selling to a diverse group of people at the shows. I fins the sandblasting produces a good rustic look and I use coarse aluminum oxide blasting media. Regular sand is sorta toxic and smelly..even though I blast using an enclosed cabinet.

Paul… textures are interesting and using them opens up a lot of other options for texturing if I can just find a few others I like and can create. peanuts?

Thomas…I seem to jump back and forth between liking lighter woods and darker woods. I guess it depends on the grain of each piece of wood. Each have some fantastic grains and each have some bland grains.

Monte…thanks…!

grizzman… You are completely correct about the diversity. I always find it interesting to talk to people at the shows and see what style, color, size, wood, texture etc. grabs their attention. Many people quickly focus in on a certain box…while others check the all out..and some people don’t even come into the booth.

Charles…thanks. they were fun to make and some were much smaller than usual. I always seem to make boxes that are not small and my wife always says I should make some smaller ones…gotta take the advice of the smarter (and prettier) half.

Mean Dean…thanks…if you think it is hard to keep up you should view it from my end where it is harder and harder to come up with new ideas…definitely keeps the brain cells working…

Thanks Roger…I don’t use any coloring…just lacquer. The reddish wood is Padauk and the other is wenge.
