thanks to Andy,Greg,Joey and others in the Carving Art Box Genre.
Sanding is not my favorite pastime but making these boxes was fun and a challange.
A friend gave me some nicely figured wood so carving seemed to be the choice
using the “Palmbox” idea as a starting off point I proceeded to carve away,
The wood seemed to talk to me and the “woodwhisper ” not withstanding continmued to talk and thus these boxes.
Wood a combo of IPE/hickory purple heart and walnut
Pin hinge was brass.
Three or four others in the wings.
Finish spray on gloss Ace Hdware.
TNX for watching.
again thanks to Andy for his tutorials and Greg for his as well
