Pictures 1,2,3, have the lids
Pictures 4,5, turned from 4: cubes of Bush Brush
Picture 6 oblong box
Didn’t show pictures with the lids off, didn’t want to get Dan’um style excited.

Awesome boxes, I love the lids texture.
Thank you for showing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

You’re a magician !!!
Very creative work, I really like your work.
What is that the wood ? Is the dark, stain or natural ???

Harry, pic 1 and 3 I mucked up when attempting to bronze them, the dark colour is from the copper paint.
4 and 5 was some Aust. wattle which had nothing going for it so I burnt them with the pyro pen and applied gloss polyurethane. Pic 2 the base is Tasmanian Myrtle with a coat of gloss poly. Thanks for the comments.
