Greg,

As always, a great box!

What is that red line that is clearly visible across the front of the lid? I like it, but am curious as to what it actually is…........

Keep up the great work!

Whoa, now that is some wild carving! I really like the depth, how thick was the stock you started with? If this box was music it would be heavy metal (in my opinion :-)

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

Thanks!
Bob, the red line across the front of the lid is a small strip of bloodwood. I cut bloodwood for the splines and used the extra for lining the front of the lid because the piece of walnut I had for the top was a bit short of a good fit and I wanted to use up the smaller walnut pieces I had in the scrap bin.

Jason, the stock I started with was 3/4”. When the music is on in the shop it is either jazz or blues…not heavy metal.

Wow, that’s a work of art!

I love how the depressions on the sides follow the flow of the grain. Wicked nice job!

Lovely, Greg.

Do you have any pictures of the work in process? I’d like to learn the process making one of these sculpted boxes. I’m curious about the design process, any special wood considerations, tools used, that sort of thing.

Russ,
I am not very good at putting descriptions into words and rarely write more than a few sentences.

Here is a detailed and extensive tutorial by Andy about his process of boxmaking and sculpting. Andy is really great at describing his entire process in good detail and with photos of the processes.
Hope this helps.
