Just stopped to have lunch and decided to check out the work here. Glad I dd. these are very nice. I like seeing how you can move beyond a simple box shape and add a sense of movement. I also like the thin walnut edging on the lid.

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

My, my, my Wilson, someone has been getting in some serious shop time! Three more wonderful boxes. As Robert indicated, the sense of movement is the most striking element of these. Am I correct that the thin walnut edging is only on one box?

Curly and quilted maple are two of my most favored wood to make things out of. Your boxes are outstanding in workmanship, choice of wood and finish! Beautiful ! ! !

Hey BC, I see a lot of tide pools here on the west coast and these are well named.
They really do remind one of a tide pool with just a pull of wind rippling the surface.

Well done !!

Between the curl of the wood and the sculpting you have done the boxes look alive.
