This is my practice ox for the first “art”box I made. I have quite a bit of walnut so I used it with the remaining curly maple and paduak from the first box. I practiced on making my curves and splines. I finished it with hand rubbed Danish Oil and wax. I also added a faux leather to the inside. It has a really soft feel to it.

The first box was a hit at the auction and I had quite a few compliments on it.

I bet you even I make a hundred of them they won’t look as good as you practice box.

Impressive.

Very nice job, I promised my oldest daughter I would make her one, hope it turns out half as good as yours.

I like the lines and overall look of the box. The round lid and curved-inset front add for some really cool detail and obviously more skill and time on your part than a flat front. Thank you for sharing.

Nice box, the little bit of sap wood is a nice touch.

So far I have not sold any. I still have this one and the first one was given to an auction for my girl’s elementary school. Price wise I would probably start at $ 120.00 and go up depending on wood and time envolved to make.
