Okay, so I am starting to really get into these boxes. The wife finally a new project for me, so I guess I’ll have to build that before I put another box up. This one is paduak and curly maple, and the tray is curly maple and bloodwood. Inside of the box and tray is flocked. I really went to extremes with the grinding this time, and depending on the angle you look from, it can look a little odd. Overall, I’m pretty happy with it, but probably won’t go this extreme next time!

Interesting design, it has given me some ideas on what to do with my angle grinder that I just got. Nice job.

Another fantastic art box. Great design. It looks like wind sculpted stone. (except for beeing woo) haha.

Great choices in wood. Paduk and Curly Maple go very nicely together.

Keep up the fantastic work.

Jeremy hi,

As said before (above) – nice work.

My question is ~ the work has a number of convex and concave shapes, the box appears to be finely finished/sanded. How did you do that?

Have you considered applying the convex / concave shaping to an irregular shaped work?

Once I am done shaping it with the side grinder, I just use a Bosch ROS w/ 80 grit to smooth out all the marks then work my way to 320. It won’t get into to the all the edges, so I just hand sand those. Slap on some poly, steel wool, then paste wax. Buff and done.

Beautiful box mate. Love the shaping. Did you use an angle grinder / sander to do that with?
