Hi everyone,

This is a bit more of a unusual box then the few i made in the past.
I tried letting go of perfect sizes and symetry. I tried holding on to a dream i had, where nothing is normal/ perfect (ussually) . But for me that doesn’t mean they arent beautiful.
The box consists of leftover pieces from my 3d cuttingboard.
It was a quik 3/4 days project.
type of Woods involved are, Walnut,maple,cherry,oak,beech and an unknown type of hardwood.
finished with Tungoil.

Thanks for looking!

I am pretty sure I have never seen a box anything like that. Very original!

You come up with some amazing ideas and somehow manage to bring them to fruition and this one is no exception Thomas.
