When I see these in the thumbnail, I immediately know that …that’s a WhoDat box. Your work is immediately identifiable. It is first rate, from top to bottom. The wood combos are lovely, the shaping superb, and the craftmanship outstanding. A#1

Gorgeous box. The top looks like it’s melted and rippling.

I’ve never worked with Cocobolo before but now you’ve got me wanting to. What a great looking box! ... and so nicely done.

Nice work! I like how you extended the sculpting to the inside. Makes me wonder if one should try shaping the inside only – could be an interesting surprise!

Greg, Beautiful Work! Love the colors and carvings. I’ve been meaning to try one of these. One note of critique. It seems that if the boxes were just a little taller, they would look more _proportional. They seem a little flat and squat. Like they are just a shade off the “Golden Ratio”. Your craftsmanship is stunning though!

Keep the great posts coming!

-- Tim, Myrtle Beach, Just one more tool, that's all I need! :)
