I completed this box a few hours ago. It is one I glued together about a week or so ago and started sculpting early yesterday morning.
Walnut with yelloheart knob. I like the yelloheart accent…sometimes just that little bit of different wood makes alot of difference. So far I sprayed 3 coats of lacquer but I still have 4 more to go.

Greg, I have run completely out of comments but just know that I love this one and agree that the yellowheart adds a nice splash of color.

That’s a gr8 way to incorporate a nicely contrasting wood. Awesome, as always.

This is by far your best avatar yet! Did I spell that right? What the hell is an avatar anyway? Looks like picture would be a better term.

Do you use a grinder or gouges to get the wavy effect? That’s pretty cool and I love how smooth it looks.
