Just an average nice box …...... FOR YOU! :-)
Great work with the grain as is your way.

I’m with Paul!

I think it’s elegant. Gonna line it with the alligator skin from the grill?

Thanks guys…I appreciate you taking the time to comment.
I have always felt very fortunate to be able to do the woodworking I really enjoy and also attempt to create my own style and designs.

Gorgeous box, The way you have integrated the hinges into your boxes makes them better, I think.

You probably won’t get a lot of accolades from PETA members though. :)

The way you sculpted the box flows so naturally with the grain. The mark of a great craftsman is to fashion a piece where viewers see the beauty of the wood without a thought to the effort involved in making it so. Great job!

Besides excellent piece of wood you choose, you sculptured it nicely. Not to mention great work on wooden hinges. Crocodiles turned pretty realistic too- are they made of wood too?.Looks like real ones roasted on BBQ.
