I rarely post my boxes here anymore. After a while they all start to look alike.

I was playing around the last few days trying to create something that didn’t look like the others I have previously created. I fear getting stagnant in my designs because creativity is what keeps me motivated and excited.

This is something a little different I came up with. My absolute favorite work is done when carving and sculpting… but with this box I just took a step in reverse and let the router table and table saw do most of the work.

Love the design, looks like the Chrysler Building in Wood. But I have to ask: How does it open? Almost looks like it could slide open instead of hinges. Thanks for posting and Merry Christmas.

This box has a very creative design and you have done a beautiful job on it.

Thank yall’ ... I most definitely appreciate the input...this was interesting to make and it started the design wheels turning for another with a bit of variati0n.
This one opens from the bottom with a removable panel held in by screws. I made it to be a urn for ashes.
