I finally completed the commissions I have been working on since the show at the beginning of December and now have some time to build some more boxes.
This first one was just completed today. It is 11×7x5” Sinker Cypress with an Ostrich leather lined interior. I tried to get a driftwood finish and it doesn’t show as well in the photos as it does sittin on my worktable.
It is more enjoyable to design, build and sell my work as a what-you-see-is-what-you-get scenario at the shows…but I sometimes find it difficult to say no to some special requests.
I just finished mentally designing a new display for the shows that start in March and need to get the lumber for it next week…This will be the 5th display I have built. I feel that how my work is displayed is very important…but I also need to work it in with my box building.
