It has really been a marathon of box sculpting and carving for me in order to get through the recent shows and commissioned orders that I promised for christmas.
Last friday I shipped out the last piece I needed to get done for the santa schedule.
The fall shows have been unbelievably great for me and have been bringing in quite a few excellent commission projects in addition to the show sales…
I get a grin on my chin when I think about a comment made to me by a woodworker I spoke with at a show over a year ago… when he commented that ”no one is going to pay those prices for a box”.
Good to get back this week to a somewhat normal schedule (whatever that is) and work without the deadlines. I have several more commissioned pieces to make unless the Mayan ApocaLips causes the world come to an end like some of the goofballs are predicting…if the world ends I guess they loose their deposits and I do not get to go to my workshop.
This larger box 16×10x7 was promised for a January delivery…so I am ahead of schedule.
This set of boxes are made from good old Louisiana Sinker Cypress that has been drying out in my lumber shed for a good while.
