A Valentines Day Box. Made with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Mostly Marblewood with a taste of Bloodwood and a taste of Wenge.Seven coats of lacquer seems to be my favorite finish.

Greg, You just continue to outdo yourself. This one is way cool and I love the red ‘tips’. I ran out of adjectives for your creations a long time ago. You should have some GREAT shows comong up this spring. I may be calling to borrow money if you keep this up! Your boxes are beautiful. Andy’s boxes are beautiful. But they are unique styles.

Thanks for the great feedback…I am having entirely too much fun! All these positive comments (and the Tabasco peppers I just ate) make me feel all warm inside. The Tabasco peppers really clear up the sinuses also.
Every so often when I am making a box I visualize a design variation and different wood combination that will hopefully keep the boxes from all looking the same. I hope I don’t make too many that look like the others…this is always a challenge.I just got an idea while grinding this box that I hope to incorporate in the next one.I will be in Houston for a show on the 23-25th of March. If any Lumberjocks live in the area of Memorial Park I hope you stop my the crafts fair and say hello. I will be at the New Orleans Jazz & heritage Festival May 3-6th also in the Louisiana Crafts tent. If you are in the area also please stop by and say hello.
