Wow. Great work. I like the sculpting. Cannot wait to hear about tool and technique for sculpting.

Interesting that we posted our projects (Six with clicks) about the same time with very similar design in maple, walnut, and an exotic wood handle on a inset top! What are the chances?

I have a box joint jig that has been collecting dust. You’ve inspired me to get it out and to make some jewelry boxes
