Some time since I’ve completed a bandsawn box, owing to the relocation of the family home and setting up the workshop.

This work, entitled Red Ox Heart, scuplted from a single block of Australian Red Cedar (root stock).

Approximate dimensions of the completed box ~ H: 250mm. D: 210. W: 145mm

Fine sanded, by hand, through the various grades finishing at 800 grit wet & dry paper. Oil – pure Tung Oil.
