This is my first posting…Thank you to all that have welcomed me already. Yes, this is an awsome website and I fully enjoy looking at eveybodys work! This probably one of my best pieces, it is approx 11”x6”x8” and was made for my father to hold his most imoptant things. So the inside was made to hold a pipe, tobacco, lighter, business card holder and pens. The pull out drawer has one side cupped for small items. I learned chip carving from a master carver and wanted to incorperate it into my box making. The box was made with Bass wood and walnut. the top was glued up and hand sanded to form the rounded top. the finish is several coats of spray poly to get into the carving. Looking back I wish I had made my own hinges, of course we are our own worst critic…I think good picture taking skills can vastly improve the appearance of a project.
-- enjoy your wood...
