I have a show coming up in a couple of weeks and these are a few new boxes iImade this week. My wife suggested that I make some smaller sculpted boxes…so her are some of them. I hope to have about 5 or 6 more small boxes by the show.
I tried to get the grain of the small maple box to flow into the grain of the top and had to select a piece that matched this as closely possible. The small boxes are 6×9x5.
The other small box is Bloodwood…one of my favorite woods.

Super boxes Greg. I would be surprised if all of these boxes didn’t sell at the show. Good luck and please let us know how it went!

Up to your usual high standards Greg. Simply beautiful, and I agree – the Bloodwood is fantastic looking.

Once again, you have outdone yourself! The way the grain flows from the top down the sides is spectacular. You have become the carving master! Good luck at the show. If you don’t mind, I’m curious as to how you price your boxes. I’m putting mine in a consignment deal and we are really wrestling with pricing. (but I have gotten some good input from my LJ buddies). Us guys seem to value our labors more than our spouses do!!!

Greg, beautiful motion in the grain and nice match up with the grain. I also like how you worked the swirls into the curvature of the base ovals! Nice art work.
