I agree that this less ‘radical’ sculpting fits the grain of that maple just right. I think that’s what you do: match the sculpting with the wood. And that has been your trademark.

Good one. The cut outs on top could act as trays. Beautiful piece Greg.

I really like how the sculpting accentuates the wood grain. The soft shaping works perfectly on this one.

Hey! Hey! This is a beautiful box. I love the fluid nature of it and the handle is wonderful.
