I wasn’t going to post these because they are just boxes made to sell at a show. But Dennis hunter keeps calling and telling me about his boxes. He has done some good work with nice woods. So I decided to share these. No abstracts or live edges. The beauty is in the wood as usual.
Redwood Root Burl top on a Walnut box with Maple miter keys. Watco Natural danish Oil darkened the Redwood a lot. the red color is gone. It looks like Walnut in color now. 7” x 5” x 5”
Padauk box with a Maple top and Redwood Burl lift. 10” x 5” x 6”
Lacewood box and top. the top is framed with Purpleheart 9” x 6 1/2” x 6”
3 more to share in the next post.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Larry, what are you doing up. Isn’t it late a night there-tomorrow or yesterday, I forget which.
