I bought a new glue bottle, the one with all the different tips and I just had to have a nice place to keep those tips. Of course I had to decorate it. Enjoy!

you are too funny hehehee
(and that is meant in the most respectful AND JEALOUS way!!!
This is exactly what I want to do—create functional, woodart boxes for everything in my home!! And I haven’t even made a little box yet. I wonder what I’m waiting for???
Oh right—to learn how to carve like you so that I can make them as beautiful.

LOVE IT

Thank you everyone for your gracious thoughts. Most of these boxes are what I call my practice pieces.

Practice Oh yea! If you look close the lettering on the box is offset to one side because I laid it out by hand and I started to close to the one side. Practice! I will always carve most of a carvings on a scrap practice board or a personal box before I carve it on a competition piece. Unfortunately for me I’m a perfectionist so carving on a practice piece lets me see if it will be pleasing to the eye. Thanks.

Oh my goodness. I just figured out that you are the same person that won the award with that incredible piece on the home page. Now I see how you do such amazing work. Practice Practice Practice. Everything in your house gets a carving touch eh. Now the Glue Bottle Box getting that fancy effort makes much more sense. I’d still want to put it on my mantle in the living room.

You all are getting the wrong idea about my house. Believe it or not there is not one piece of my chip carving in it. My wife doesn’t really like the looks of my chip carving. She thinks it doesn’t go with our interior. My carvings either hang in my small carving room or I sell them.

That surprises me. I wouldn’t comment on your wife’s taste, but I love your work.

However, I must confess that I thought that every available wood surface on you house would be chip-carved. I was thinking that your friends would have to frisk you to make sure that you had no hidden chisels when thy invited your over to their homes. LOL

Roger, fortunately for us, you are a perfectionist!!

Your wife’s decorating conviction is probably a gift—otherwise you wouldn’t be able to part with anything. This way, before you even start a project you know that it is half way out the door already.

Don, that is too funny. But it does give me an idea !! Roger—you are formally invited to come visit me here in Ontario. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your chip knives :D

Your shop is going to become a museum one day with all those great looking storage boxes you make. Love your carvings.
