Tatiana, your carving is beautiful and creative. I marvel at how intricate and detailed they are. You are a gifted carver. However, I think it is time you worked on making better actual boxes. The hinges and hardware do not equal your carving art.

There is nothing on the inside of the box to make it functional. Could you improve the color or finish? Perhaps you just buy them in bulk already made, but maybe you should look around for someone who can make a better product or teach you to build a better product. Surely you or someone around you could build a box that is worthy of the time and effort you spend carving it.

I like your carving and admire the art involved in that phase of your work. The lining and the bee inside are a nice touch. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Very nice chip carving. I took a class once in it and decided it was not for me.

The hinges could be improved upon but I don’t agree with Boxguy / Big Al that it is that bad of a box.

Tatiana, I owe you an apology. I went on your projects page and have seen that you do vary the shapes of your boxes.
