This is the last of a trio of boxes. this one is walnut, purpleheart maple and a cedar bottom. I used a right angle grinder with a 60 grit flap disc on it. Then lots and lots of sanding.

Here is all three together.

Amazing! how did you acomplish that look? it almost looks “crumpled” for lack of a better word….....better yet, how did you come up with that idea!

@ abranV. I just ground away at it with a right angle grinder. Andy did a wonderful blog about these boxes and I got a lot of idea’s from him. You can find it at http://lumberjocks.com/Argyllshire/blog/9672. Greg also does wonderfully sculpted boxes at http://lumberjocks.com/GregL

These gentlemen do some really incredible work and have inspired mine.
