This is the box I made for my Goddaughter, after messing up the original. Followed the same pattern but with different wood. I got a little braver with the grinder this time. It was fun so I can see more in the future. The wood is cherry and maple with walnut splines. Just like her little sister, she seemed to really like it.

I can certainly understand why she would like it! Nice job. When you say you got a little braver with the grinder, can I ask what exactly do you mean? Thanks for sharing.

Both of your boxes turned out very nice. How is the lyptus to work with? I have never had any but it has a good look/color.

I’d say you got more than a little braver. This shape is a lot more free and unrestrained. Looks like you are really getting with the carving concept. I can hardly wait to see what happens next. What fun for us to see and share in this journey. Thanks for taking us along.

Thanks everyone! @ gfadvm, the lyptus was nice to work with, except for the orange colored haze in the air LOL, I can’t recall having any problems with it

Thanks Paul- I had heard it was very ‘splintery’. It looks nice so I gotta try some.
