This irregular shaped box came to mind when I knew I wanted to make another small chest, but not what style.
So like an idgit I started rough sketching ideas right on the wood and started cutting before I had really picked a direction to go. Luckily…it all worked out well in the end. The blond wood you’re seeing is the sapwood i left on the black walnut to give it an unusual look.

-- The wood often tells me what it wants to be... great... now the voices in my head have company....
