...I just had to try it again.

Don’t worry Greg I think your position as master box sculptor is till very safe ;-)

The boxes are about 5 1\”2 square and 3 1\2” deep. Maple with walnut, bubinga and zebra inserts. Finished with tinted Danish oil and poly topcoats.

These are a blast to make. Definitely going to try it again.

Thanks for looking. And if anyone can tell me how to rotate my photos using my tablet and or iPhone I’d appreciate it

I’m surprised the boxes didn’t just tumble off of the screen! ha ha.

Great job on the boxes and having fun too!

The sculpting bug has bitten…Very nice…once you get started there is no turning back.
I think the only way to get the photos facing correctly is with a photo editing program such as paint Shop Pro.

Nice work!

On my iPad, I use the Photos app. Select a photo on your Camera Roll (or other app), click Edit, the choose Rotate. So simple, even I can do it.
