Really good looking design. Just out of curiosity how long does it take you to do something like this? I’m fascinated by it but not sure I have the patience to do it.

You’re not charging nearly enough for your efforts then! It’s terrific work.

I think this one is your best yet. At least my favorite. Thanks for the time estimate too.

I’m assuming the week is duration, how many work hours? Do you track time or is it a hobby that happens to also sell.

I often take months to finish a project because hobby time is scarce due to work and vacations or I’m waiting 21 days for a full cure on something before I can proceed. I’m still hobby woodworking but hope to go pro someday soon.

Carving of the top has taken 12 hours, the sides – 7 hours. Plus 3 days of finishing.
p.s. I am a professional woodcarving artist with a degree in Applied Fine Arts. After graduation fom the University, I used to work in a church work shop for one year, but then, starting from 2014, I am a freelancer. I spend almost all my time on creating new patterns and carving my boxes and other wooden pieces, and, of course, I am trying to sell my works in my online store.
