I made this sculpted box from Louisiana Cypress and Walnut. It took about 3-4 hours because I wanted to see how fast i could complete this if I just used butt joints instead of mitered corners. The finish is sprayed lacquer. The size is 9”x5”x 3”

-- Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpiece… because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work

Oh Greg, you just never cease to amaze me. Always new ideas, new woods, new swirls. Glad to see something of yours again. I don’t get here often anymore.

Great work in such a short amount of time. I like the lid overhang for the lift and the low spots in the lid corresponding to the grain pattern. Nice job.

4 hours? That is just about as amazing as the box itself. Nice work.
