Very nice.I’ve always wanted to try one of these boxes but have no idea how to do the carving.Someone told me to use an angle grinder… but with what attachment?Good job.

Welcome to the club! Nice looking box. I like the way the grain pattern gets funky when you carved into it. This will lead you to lots of creativity and fun! You’ll realize there are no limits and you can do whatever you want (disclaimer: you will find that the thickness of the lid and sides and the dado for the bottom will act as limits as you grind into them and expose things you didn’t want to!!)
Paul- angle grinder with sanding disks…look at Home Depot, HF, Sears, etc. You can get solid disks and flap wheels that are great to use.

Very nice Brenda – the lid opening is very well hidden in the grain.

Roger, I believe the lighter wood is poplar and the darker is rosewood. It was all from my scrap wood pile.
Martin, since I didn’t have an angle grinder, I used my sander with an 80 grit disc.Notice I said “didn’t have”....I just bought an angle grinder to see what I can do with it!
