I love making boxes. It allows me to show off the work that was already accomplished over the course of the trees life. I look for lumber with a story to tell, and do my best to show that story.

The boxes are well done, but the woods are fantastic. Thanks for sharing and I hope to see more. Andy is correct that you need to pay the box makers initiation fee and send us some of this wood!!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
