Another box very similar to the earlier post today. In fact, prior to sculpting the boxes were identical. I took a different approach sculpting this one, and used a different stain on the radiatta pine. I think the result is a more pleasing, masculine look. At least that was my goal! The box is 12” x 8” x 7”h. The lid is hinged on a concealed 3/16” brass pin. The lift out tray is made from 1/4” stock from the same board. Bottoms are 1/4” ply for the box and 1/8” Baltic birch for the tray. Box and tray are lined with black felt. Finish is stain, three coats of brush-on shellac, then paste wax.

Thanks for looking!

I actually like this one better. Waves are more flowing.

Very nice indeed. I do like the form of carving and it’s flow in your designs. Well done.
