I really like the flowing lines of the sculpted top. I have never tried sculpting, what tools do you use to achieve the beautiful results?

look up holey galahad. I use to use flapwheel sanding disks, but a lid like this would take at least two of them at 8 dollars a pop. The power rasp costs about 80, but I have done several projects with it and it has paid for itself a long time ago. But if you just want to give it a whirl, the flap wheels are the way to go.

You have certainly been busy (and productive!) All of your boxes are very nice but the curly oak has to be my favorite. There can’t be much curly oak out there and you put yours to good use.

How do you, or anyone else, for that matter, shape wood like this? A grinder? Gouges? Pliers? I have got to learn how to do this. I want to start doing some art nouveau stuff and learning this technique would be beneficial.
