cypress box with a walnut knob
The finish is laquer….7 coats…which seems to be my magic number.

Looks great Greg. The wood grain is perfect for this sculpted design.

I love how you made the swirls continue along the different edges/planes of the box. It really adds to the continuous flow of design. Very sophisticated yet whimisical. Keep up the fantastic work!

Beautiful….the grain is spectacular….that’s a magnificent piece of cyprus…and you really made it pop. Did you power carve or did hand carve? Great job!

I can say WOW!, can’t I? This is a new look to me, very pleasing and engaging. A tiny bit reminiscent of Ron Fleming’s carved and turned bowls and Bill Hunter’s sculptural work but with much more freedom…guess that’s what inspired is. Really a fun feast for the eye.

I really like the box. What i can not understand is how you make the curves. I usually take a grinder and start carving but how do you keep je neat lines on top?

I’m looking forward to the next one

I always enjoy looking at these boxes you make. The design on the legs is awesome.
