Thanks to Andy and his wonderful blog I was able to successfully complete this art box.. We made a few out of poplar first than the final product.. I think the most difficult part was the grinding it took three practices boxes and a lot of looking at pictures on the internet of waves and dunes before I was comfortable in the shapes..

The body is Bubinga with a Maple medallion corner ,splines and handle
The finish is lacquer.
The bottom is lined with black velvet

Thanks again Andy..

I agree with everyone else. It’s a beautiful box. Andy did a great job of showing his method. Looks so much better than the deep gouges IMO.

That is really a classy build. The subtle sculpting really showcases your great wood combination. Love the handle.

Nicely done…certainly conveys a fluid motion of waves or dunes. Andy will be proud!
