This is a work in progress, not this box but the concept.
This is a new design I have been playing with for some time and have yet to get it right. I wanted to post this to let everyone know that I am still alive, thanks to everyone who has asked about me of late :-)
My inspiration for this was the beach with drifting sand and sea stacks. We have a few beaches that have these giant rocks close to shore on the Oregon coast, like Bandon and Cannon Beach.
I simply made a box out of Bubinga and overlayed it with 1/4’’ thick spalted maple.then inserted some pieces of Cocobolo, then ground away the surface leaving the background. I was hoping to better express drifting sand but this is what I have so far.
The handle is the lip of one of the rocks. I dont have the interior finished, so no pictures.
The finish is lacquer.
Let me know what you think!
I believe this idea of layering and grinding away the top has merit for others to use in their designs.
I would really like to see what some of you can do with this so I can copy your work,haha.
Thanks for looking,
-- If I can do it, so can you.
