The original box of Hickory and Maple was one of my first attempts at a box. The lap joints had popped, the top warped, and so many other faults that I had not bothered applying a finish. I kept trying to fix it and my frustration made me think of a sculpture by Vigeland depicting a toddler having a tantrum.
One of my goals with the “revised” box was to actually follow a set of directions; almost succeeded. The layers of grain look to me like a cross section of layers of earth. It deserves a new name: Terra.
