Sweet. Looks like a lot of sanding required. Paid off. Nice.

Very cool and I like the movement of the waves. Someday, I will combine this technique in my work. Thanks for posting.

That is some serious scuplting work I bet there’s a few hours sanding on that isn’t there? Great choice of woods

Greg, These boxes are real eye catchers. The sculpting is unique but you finishes are what put them over the top for me. Thanks for posting and thanks for the reply to my question yesterday. Don

This one is my favorite one of yours so far. The sculptural cuts blend very well together. Then the choice of woods are great together.

Guess it has all been said. Nice! Looks like you have the techniques down? Are these for clients? I’m looking into cutting tools for my grinders. So far I’ve only found circular cutters for my 4 inch grinder. Is this hand work? Or machine assisted? Are the sides sculpted after assembly? Any plans for larger pieces? What I’ve seen in your work is good design, sculpting and attention to color and grain movements. Am I overthinking?? LOL

Well done, actually better than well done. This one is a beauty! Love the flow of the lines you put in & your right the maple really adds to it! Great work!

Re: My comments were from ignorance. Just started viewing circa Bird Houses. Went back to first postings, and answered a few of my questions. Notice you also use some great wood. How much is local?

yea greg your boxes are eye candy for sure, you do a wonderful job and the more you do the better they get…i do have a question though, when you do the shaping of these boxes, do you do it outside or do you have a good vac system on your grinder…would like to know…ive done just a little experimenting and know this process makes lots of fine dust…..thanks…grizzman
