A walnut sculpted box with Padauk accents. This is one I completed this past week.
I need to re-take my photos…sorry about the glare from the flash. I will take better photos and repost.

Greg, you have the sculpting down to a science – a beautiful science! I tried a couple of them, but mine didn’t come out nearly as good as yours :(

That one looks real nice with the Paduk contrast. You gonna post a pic of the inside too? :)

I may start calling you the Prince of Paduk. You seem to have a way with it and anyway I think Paduk must be big enough to warrant at least a Prince, maybe even a King. ;-)

Nice one Greg.

beautiful box, the contrast of the handle and the box colours adds great interest and appeal to such a finely sculpted box.

This one has hinges… I think I like the recessed lids . But you do both styles great.
