Hello Jock’s, here some more from the honey hole of

Curly Black Cherry. Now I name these two boxes The Curly Temple Box due to the fact they remind me so much of the curly childhood star actress Shirley Temple. So my question to you is who really has more curly waves. vs Thanks for viewing have a great week….Blkcherry

Absolutely frigging beautifull. Fantastic wood, design everything. Wow!

Great pieces and the grain looks just as complicated as her hair

They turned out nicely. Well done. What do you do with all your boxes? I imagine if you kept them all, you would have quite the collection by now.

That is some spectacular wood and some excellent boxmaking craftsmanship. I will stumble onto some of that special wood someday as I’m always looking.

Both are winners; wish some of those child actors/actresses today have more talent and learn how to be decent human beings!

Nice design and execution. I like how you used the angles. And I always like how those spline joints accent the corners when different wood is used for them.

Wilson, when one looks at wood like that, it makes it obvious why we do what we do. It’s like candy to a child. Beautiful, beautiful wood….and the boxes are not too shabby either! Wonderful craftsmanship as always Wilson.

These are incredible. Is there any chance you could show us the insides? I am sure I am not the only one here who would like to see.
