A Canarywood & Padauk jewelry Box I just completed. Sculpted using my “old school’ sculpting style. 10.25” x 7” x 6” and finished with lacquer. I originally intended to use a danish oil finish but after using it on some sample scraps I decided it was too dark.

Your box is absolutely magnificent. The excitement it inspires is unbelievable. The combination of woods and texture gives it a surreal look that sets it apart from all other boxes. A true work of art from a true artist. Thanks for inspiring

Do you have any pictures of the bottom or with the lid open ?

Thanks for all the positive comments.
Sculpting these is definitely a sawdust generating monster. I do shape it with an angle grinder and then sand and sand and sand. Gives my downdraft table and dust collection a serious workout.

I did make a removable divider tray for it but realized it had a splintery split in it so I am making another and will photo it when done. The box bottom and the tray have a leather lined bottom.

Do you have any photos of the end result of the saw trestle work?

The box looks good too, up to your usual brilliant standard.

Awesome work, Greg. Every time i see one of your posts I take a second to look at my angle grinder and think to myself, “some day…”“

Have you ever posted videos of the process? I know I’d watch…
