Some Boxes

These are a few recently finished boxes.

The first picture is a wine gift box in red oak, with dovetails, a raised panel bottom, and a top carved in the style of a 17th century Bible box. The carving is inspired by Peter Follansbee and Oldwolf. The pattern is taken from the banner image on Peter’s website. It’s my first carving in this style, and took about eight hours. I carved the lid figuring that if I screwed it up badly enough I could throw it out and do another. But the first try came out fairly well and I kept it. Everything on the box was done by hand.

The box in the second photo is made of poplar with a cherry handle and a bookmatched lid. The poplar for this box came from a tree downed on my property by a storm. On a whim I cut about a 2 foot piece and tossed it in my garage to dry for about five years. I pulled it out earlier this year and processed it into boards entirely by hand—learning a few things along the way.

And obviously there’s a little pencil box and one of those wacky cutting boards in the photo as well :-)

Love all of them! Carving is great, cutting board is really cool. I really like old poplar. It just looks rustic all by itself.

Great boxes. You have a lot of patients to complete the carving
