I have been experimenting with my new Arbortech minin grinder and here are some of the results.

-- If retiring is having the time to be able to do what you enjoy then I have always been retired.

WOW, love the effect that has on the lacewood….... this might even get me to try something like this…..

Lacewood and Bloodwood are a great combination, fantastic job Greg !

wow greg, what everybody else said and more…i bet working with the new grinder was fun…being able to make the carvings smaller would sure add a different look, not that there is anything wrong with what your doing, but switching it up a little here and there is what wood working is all about…really like this one…grizz

Wow – I’ve got the finish drying on a couple of boxes that I recently made, after seeing this beauty – I’m almost embarrassed to post mine. Beautiful work Greg.

Every box gets cooler looking. Just when I think you cant do better, you post something like these 2 today! I am envious of your skills. Thanks for the link to your new carving tool. I’d buy one if I thought I could make boxes like yours but I think you are more gifted in this area than I am. Keep amazing us!

That is a beaut, Greg. I’m going to look into this Arbortech stuff! Have you found lacewood to be on the crisp or brittle side and chip out easily? Is there a way to prevent that?
