Made it to the library again! One of the joys of rural life and limited internet access is being forced out of the shop and into town to stay connected with the internets.
These Boxes are created with figured maple and purple heart. They were constructed with 3/4 inch thick sidewalls and were carved using the Holey Galahad grinding wheel. That sucker eats wood like an angry starving beaver on crack.
I haven’t made any boxes in a while, and I am really pleased how these turned out. I finished these with wipe on poly, then waxed and buffed. I like the silky smooth feel contrasted with the sharp contours.
