Great looking box Greg – I’ve got to try one of those one day (minus the sculpting).

Greg, I like the shaping on this one a LOT. I also like the stepped routing that form the legs. Again, very well designed and executed.
I looked for alligator while I was at the fabric store and ran across some simulated gator, dyed red. Do you use the real thing or is it the same as I’ve found?

Wonderful sculpting once again, I can see why you like that sinker cypress. Rance, I think that Greg just pulls up a few alligators when he is pulling up all the sinker cypress he is using, but he can not admit it or the game warden and tree wardens would be all over him. ;<) Thank you once again for sharing your art with us.

Mighty fine work. The wood almost looks like a section of Ponderosa Pine bark. Glad you got around to finishing this one.

I really like this one Greg. Course, I’ve said that with every single box you’ve built.

Honestly, I like your untextured sinker cypress better but this one is nice and is “different” from your others.

That’s cypress alright! Very familiar with it. Sculpting really brought out some interesting and attractive grain patterns. Nice one!

That’s a nice one Greg I like how the grain shows and flows nicely at the mitres .That’s a winner for sure .

I always sincerely appreciate the feedback that everyone takes the time to post. Thanks so very much…!
Although each wood type has its own characteristics and beauty, the sinker cypress is special to me because of it being a local wood and has been submerged in the swamps for so very many years. There are many other great woods with fantastic grain and color throughout the world…but variety is also a key to keep things interesting.
rance…I use some genuine alligator leather but I also use some simulated leather also. The processed alligator hide is very expensive (about 20 times more expensive than leather) and not something I run across that often.
