If you are familiar with Zen gardens here is one I made yesterday. I am thinking about getting into box making, looks fun, but don’t have “stuff” that I need to put in a box ? (what needs to be in a box, came in a box) So I decided to make a box that was a garden.
The garden is suspended on top and the drawer below holds the rocks and tools when not in use. I wanted to stay black and white so I used walnut (with some sapwood), hard maple, white sand and black rocks. The windchime was an afterthought, one I do not like today though. I may add more rocks if I find neat ones and have plenty of room in the drawer for them.
I need some practice in my “gardening” techniques, but you get the picture how they work.
Now as a guy of course I am already thinking how fun a toy bulldozer would be in there .
