I don’t know what is more enjoyable..making boxes or eating homemade gumbo…I did both today and can’t stop grinning…

Greg, Thanks for posting the starter box. Inquiring minds want to know. Duck or shrimp gumbo?

Tom… it was Chicken & Andouille Gumbo and it was scrumptioulicious… I usually make about 2 gallons at a time ( I’ve got a huge pot especially for that)...not that Carol & I eat all that.. but I sure stock up the freezer.

Little different twist on the sculpting on this one Greg. I like it.

I’m an ignorant Yankee, but I was a transplant Arkansan on the border with Mississippi where I met some folks fro Louisiana and I enjoyed shrimp and duck gumbo. Yep it’s good stuff.

Great sculpting and terrific design! Love the hinges and matching stripe across center. Great job!

Now, this is a very nice box and I like the way it comes together and says in a bold way, ”Look at me!!!”

It has character and will be a very nice eye catcher.

I was just thinking to myself… “I wonder if he puts the hinges on before or After the sculpting…?” then I saw the last pic.

Nice work as always, Greg. Glad to hear you got your fill o’ life today.

Paul…I keep track of all boxes I have made since 2010 and It gets difficult at times to come up with a design that doesn’t look similar to something else I made…I can easily spend several hours drawing out a design, erasing it and repeating this process many times before I come out with an acceptable one.

Tom.. I usually spend some outrageously long and late hours in my shop and didn’t complete this box until sometime around 10pm..and then took some pictures of it.. Hopefully the people who are now in bed and view lumberjocks will wake up in the morning.
That is when I know it will be a good day when I wake up and am still alive…

Thanks Malibu Bob…I would find it difficult to return to using metal hinges after making wood ones. I’ve used brass hinges and hidden pin hinges and these are my favorite.
