This is one of the first sinker cypress boxes I made. This box got a big deep scratch on it quite a while back and it had been sitting on my office shelf because I would not sell a scratched box.
Today I decided to give it a facelift since it wasn’t doing any good just gathering dust and since I had sold most of the other cypress boxes that I weathered..

Greg, you are able to take a lonely box and restore it to a masterpiece.

Do you ever get bored with making box after box?
They are all very nice, and you do a good job.
But I think I would go nuts making the same thing again and again.

This is one great looking box. I am glad that you decided to fix the scratch. It happened to me with a different project. It waited for months to be fixed.

Never get tired of looking at your work, all so beautiful… One day I’ll try this style of box making. Expect a phone call of Help! LOL Hope the show went well as I’m sure it did.

Beautiful! Is there a tutorial anywhere to do a box like this? I love the various contours.
