Thanks for posting this. Wondering if your just using lacquer finish? Beautiful grain! and of course flawless technique.

Wow, way nice box. I like the treatment you apply to completely change the appearance of the square box. Nice work. And those wooden hinges, really nice.

Very nice. Looks like it was soda blasted after sculpting?

Stay at this sculpted box thing ….. you may get good at it.
...... you know that was really, really tongue in cheek right?
Another great piece and thanks for the how-to. Not that knowing the steps means that any of us could duplicate the creativity you display….....

Wow the transformation of this storage box is breath-taking I must say. Who knew some little details and careful crafting could create such a majestic masterpiece such as this. Good job and looking forward to see more of your beautiful creations.
