It is some time since I’ve made a contribution to Lumber Jocks, in the mean time have sold and built a new workshop (and home) and about to get back into bandsaw box making.
This work “Platypus” is a story box of a rare Australian animal the Platypus, the carvings tell part of it’s story. I hope you enjoy.
Box description ~
A four drawer work sculpted from one block of particularly beautiful Australian Red Cedar.
The fine finishing compliments this extraordinary timber.
Hand carved, depicting the unique Australian Platypus poking it’s nose out of it’s den. The side walls contain carvings of the predators (man is not shown) and the pup being suckled. Platypus make their home on the river bed, amongst the tree roots which are represented by the drawer handles.
