My first “Art” Box based on the plans put up on Lumberjocks by Andy

I need to improve my techniques for sure! Andy’s instructions are very detailed and well done!

My biggest mistake was not using a rubber pad under the sand paper disks with the angle grinder. (They blew up rather quickly and I was lucky nothing hit me).

Again Thank You Andy

Wow! I love strong contrast of the Paduak? and Maple?.
Very nice shaping and tight joints.
Well done!
I hope to see more from you.
Thanks for posting the link.

A very interesting effect. Crumpled wood?
