another great one Greg, although i do have to say these are not my favorite colors, but the box is fantastic, and your shaping is spot on, Ive got a friend who has worked the jazz fest for several years now, this year she is just attending it for the music…no work this year….but i do hope you do well…with boxes like these, i don’t see how you can fail…

Greg, I must say that I am glad I am not going to be at that show. I would go home broke. There are so many you your recent boxes that I would have a very hard time not buying.

Excellent job as always. Good luck at the show

The positive feed from everyone is always a good feeling… and it always has special meaning coming from my fellow woodworkers.

Robert…I like the purpleheart when I can find a board that has that rich deep purple. I really had to search thru the lumber racks to select this piece.

grizzman…these colors seem to grow on a person…especially if the are an LSU fan or have been to MardiGras. I am really looking forward to Jazz Fest> I haven’t had a booth there before but have been there as a Fest Lover many times…12 music stages with unbelievable music…more great food than I could eat in a lifetime and many outstanding crafts.

Jim…I am cranking alot ob boxes out but it sure will be nice to take a few days off after this show since I have been working 12+ hours daily for months..

JoeyG…I always seem to buy other artists work when I go to a show..I guess it is addictive.

Greg, I just love your boxes. I make allot of band saw boxes and wanted to ask how you go about making your boxes. Is it your idea or learned from another person?

Nice work Greg. I am curious about the shaping. What set up do you use to sand material away?

Hawaiilad…these boxes are not hard to make…just time consuming. Sculpting boxes is not my idea…peope have been sculpting boxes for quite a long time. I first saw some sculpted boxes back around 1968 or 1969 by a man in Tennessee who created some fantastic carved and sculpted jewelry and keepsake boxes. I had one of his pieces until 2005 when my house and its contents were destroyed. There are also other taleted and creative box sculptors here on Lumberjocks. When I first joined Lumberjocks I saw some work and tutorials by Andy….he creates some beautiful work and has a knack for putting how he does it into words.

Tim…I do my shaping with a angle grinder and a sanding attachment I bought at Home Depot. I just take my time and make sure I always focus and keep a very light touch sso I don’t grind too much into the wood. I also use a Foredom electric carver, random orbit sander and a whole lot of hand sanding and detailing.

Fantastic, Greg!

I can’t believe you are going to have a booth at Jazz Fest I’ll be there both weekends, and I’d love to stop by and meet you.
