Sculpted "Man Box"

I made jewelry boxes for my two daughters. My grown (yeah, right!) son said he wanted a box, too. This box varies from others I have done in that it is 5/4 red oak (full 1” thick net). I used this material to allow for deeper carving. The box measures 12”w x 8”d x 7”high. The lift-out tray is 1/4” material milled from the same board. The box is suitable for storing watches, pocket knives, small handguns, and grenades. The bottom os the box and lift-out tray are covered in black felt. The finish is 4 coats of wipe on poly and 3 coats of paste wax.

Thanks for looking.

Wow that’s got lots of movement with the contouring plus the wood grain. A very cool box.

Really nice job Ron. You’re really getting the hang of this carving stuff.

I’m not usually a big fan of cathedral grained red oak but this is spectacular! Something about the symmetry of the sculpting plus the grain makes this box look alive. Your sculpting skills are remarkable and really fit the wood. I really like how you wrapped the pattern around the corners and over the top. GREAT JOB!
