Hello everyone, I figured I would take a stab at Andy’s Palm Boxes. Just a little Aromatic Cedar and Yellow Pine. The grinding on the all pine box was a lot of fun!

Fantastic little boxes Leigh.
I love ‘em all but you did a really nice job on the sculpted one. Just the right amount of detail!!!

On box with an inset, is that just a routed out area and the piece actually “instet”? Or does it go all the way through?

What finish did you use?

Thanks for sharing…............

Very cool boxes. I like how you made a very basic pine box a real beauty. Great little boxes keep them coming.

Thanks you guys. I had a lot of fun with these. I am currently working on more. GENE— The inset on the top goes all the way through.

They are very pretty and well finished boxes. In fact I looked at all your boxes and I really like them all!
