i’ve been making a lot of boxes. it’s really addictive!! i’m trying to use different techniques with every box. i also had a crack at building a andy-box. this was a real hard one, it’s completed but it is not as good as i want it to be. i’ll be trying a another one next week!!
all the comments are very welcome!!! there is a lot to learn

Really beautiful boxes, I especially love the little ‘pagode’ japanese once, with the big top.

It looks like you are having fun and that’s why I make boxes. I like the variety and woods. The sculpted box looks good. I haven’t done one of those yet. Thanks for sharing your work.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Did you use a Foredom, or Dremel to sculpt the last one? It really looks awesome. Great project
