I make so many boxes with hinges…pin hinges and standard brass box hinges…
Needed to get a bit more variety…so I decided to make a few boxes with removable tops. Got to keep things interesting and different.
Rosewood and Padauk with a ostrich skin lined bottom and a lacquer finish.

Beautiful box Greg!
The lid looks great.
It flows like a delicious mars chocolate.
Great combo for sure

Another beauty Greg. In my early twenties I worked for a while as a candy maker and this one really reminds me of some of the hand marked chocolates that we produced. The women who did the marking were real artists.
Very creamy!

Greg,

I am in the process of making one myself, but I am not getting anywhere near the results of yours.

How are you doing it?

I am using a Arbortech planner and sandpaper, maybe I am not getting enough material off.

I would appreciate your comments.

Have a look please.

Regards

Greg,

Everyone seems to have a similar response. I’d put candles on it. Had chocolate cake for my birthday. :)

Do you ever screw up? LOL!

Greg, fine job as usual. I like the fact that you keep changing things a little to vary what you make. It keeps me wondering what you are going to do next. perhaps you are wondering about that too.

Hope sales are going well.
