So pretty, make me want to reach out and tough it. If I didn’t have a ton of pluming to do I would run down to the shop now and see how bad I could mess up a box :)

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback. These are alot of fun (and work) to make but I enjoy it so much.
ncdon…It takes me between 12-15 hours to make a box and do the sculpting. Some woods sculpt much easier than others and some very hard woods take longer.Gater…I use a angle grinder to create the sculpting. Home depot has a 4’ rubber pad that lets you convert your grinder for use with 4” sanding discs. The rest is just practice and getting the feel for using a feather light touch instead of a heavy hand. Complete focus and concentration is important to me for doing this.
Many years ago when I met a sculptor in Tennessee who created unbelievable carvings with a chain saw. Much more refined than the standard chainsaw sculptings of bears that were around. I figured that if he could create such fine work with a chainsaw I should be able to sculpt with a grinder.

I completely agree with this wood combo. Very nice. I like the extra work by sculpting the underside of the lid as well as the top. Keep up the great work.
