This is the latest finished box in the series based on the Wood Whisperers project. It was very well received by my partner. The carving is still not up to scratch – each wood has its own character but all demand better steel and sharpness and most of all skill than I have to offer so far. This is very hard old recycled wood hence the defects and repairs but it all adds some character that goes with my rough workmanship for now and that I hope will help make these gifts to family something to cherish. The small triangular bits are Solomon Island ebony by the way – picked up at the recent Hands On Wood Show in Brisbane.
