I love the fluidity of the grains! It looks like it’s about to morph into something else! Beautiful, as always!

Wild grain. I think the sculpting enhances it.

Was going to ask you what your next creative challenge is since you appear to have mastered the jewelry box, but I see you are still exploring and finding new solutions. This box tells me you are continuing to explore.
I really like this one!

Greg.. another beautiful box. Do you do the sculpturing with an angle grinder?

Greg, could we have a peek inside?
I know what you mean rkoorman. Some of these boxes are ‘just another one’. I can see your point, but I still like it.

Interesting perspectives on the same piece? Which means that it evokes responses? What do you think Greg?

AMAZING GREG!!!! It’s hard to beat the beauty of Cocobolo. It is one of my favorite woods – although it can be toxic for some. Great work though.
