A customer commissioned me to build a theme box for his daughters christmas gift and gave me a budget of $150.00. He stated that she is into Woodlands Fairies, so I pondered on it a couple days did some research and came up with a mushroom, I sketched a rough on paper and sent it to him, he responded she would love it but he gave me guidlines that he wanted it to look woodsie and also elegant. So I got to work right away and came up with what you see here, so I ask does this look woodsie and elegant? I haven’t gotten with him yet on the finished product. My concern is that it’s more of a rustic tone then a woodsie look.
This Bandsaw box is an orginal design and creation it was created out of spalted hackberry, this is a different tree then my previous boxes were made from and is a darker wood, I think it had a little longer rotting period then the first tree, both came from the same location. I added a hidden drawer on the top drawer, finished it in tung oil and lacquer.
Thanks for viewing and answers.
