I like all of these boxes, thanks for sharing some more inspiration.

As far as the felt, I can see the purpose of it in jewelery circumstances but what a shame to hide all of that beautiful wood!

Keep up the great work!

Outstanding results. I love that “crack” box, well actually, all 3 boxes. I love the fact that a BS box can be any shape or size. An “outside the box” box. You have done well my friend.

Oh, I had a friend make the cracked box design and I absolutely loved it. You took it up a notch with the laminated wood. All three are lovely, but that wave box is calling to me to reach out and touch it.

What a neat idea! The turquoise inlay is one cool idea! I have to see how you did that.

Nice Work – Starting my own venture in the “non-rectangular” world…. I planning to make some nightstands in the same format as the cracked cabinet and other cartoon furniture I have seen around…

Again – nice work and detail….
