Here is a box I finished for this last weekends carving show. I call it “the Goodwill Box” because I got the idea from a box I had seen at Goodwill. The box is made of basswood. This is my second attempt at making my own box. All in all, I think it turned out pretty good.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you. The box took me about 10 hrs to finish, the sheep took about 3 years to finish. I started carving the sheep and through it in my carving toolbox and left it for years.
