This is the final chip carved box I carved for my family in remembrance of my younger brother. This box is for my older brother.
Basswood, lined with velvet, sealer and lacquer finish. The design is free form, positive image carving, a design I created using the Pattern Wizard.
Thanks for looking. I’m glad I could do this for my family to honor my brother’s life.
