These are my first attempt at making boxes using the grinder. I watched the tutorial on this web site and went for it. The first box is oak ,just waves . The second box is pine with mahogany stain and a maple rain drop. The third box is oak with a little bit of purple heart accents on the lid. This was alot of fun to make but very dirty and dusty.

Really nice looking boxes.

Its not a mess. Its sawdust. There is a difference.

Great looking boxes. I’ve been thinking about trying something like this, now I just have that much more inspiration.

Those are all very nice boxes. Man that 3rd one is very very well done. Its just a cool looking box.

I’ve followed along here as well on the tutorial but YOU have definitely inspired me to give these a try. Thanks.

Nice job. I’m might have to try out that cross box myself. I look at it and start asking myself, what shapes can I sculpt into my boxes next time. Thanks for the inspiration. As you said these are a lot of fun and as Greg said, they are very addictive. Thanks for sharing your art work with us.

First attempt? Amazing boxes. The second and third are my favorites. Incorporating figures into the carving was inspired. I am totally envious of you skill with the grinder. I pretty much hated my attempts (but somebody bought them so I don’t have to look at them!).

Nice, I’ve been contemplating trying the grinder technique, you mentioned a tutorial. Could you post a link?
