So make a box, make a really really good box.
Use the best woods you can find, exotic woods, expensive woods.
It will take every scrap of the boards you bought to make the box.
No mistakes. If you screw up a cut you will not be able to find another board that will match and you can not sell the box.
You have a client. You have a deadline. It has to be perfect.
150 steps later you did it. It is as close to perfect as possible. Not one piece of scrap. It’s done.
No not yet…the client would like the exterior of the box sculpted to resemble lapping waves along the shoreline of a beach.
Now put that perfect box that took weeks to make on a stand. Take a deep breath, swallow hard…
Don’t cut too deep or you will ruin it. Don’t cut deep enough and the pattern will not show. It all comes down to this….
Can you do it???
It will be worth it!
There is no look in the world like a sculpted box.
And there is only one way to get it!
Take some risks!
