Nice box. It has a tough look to it. Should be a good seller. Good luck.

Thanks for the oh so nice feedback….
grizzman.. I always…well most always…make the lifts with a contrasting wood but sometimes it is good to have it blend in and not take the focus away from the box

Monte..thanks. ..My wife and I are definitely looking forward to the shows. They are fun and are always enjoyable.

Doc…the splinters are definitely a part of me…still trying to dig some out…

Oldsaxon….much appreciated

Thewoodman2000…thanks. The shows are coming up quickly and several are back to back weekends.

Jerry…I never consider it hard work because I am having entirely too much fun…

doubled…the hardest part was finish sanding it to get all the splintery wood out without ruining the appearance I wanted.. Got another one ready to go on the sculpting table in a little bit.

Very cool Greg. I have no idea how you did it. The wood grain looks like it’s ready to separate into thin layers. Amazing skill!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

A perfect match to that guy in the last pic!

Do you soda blast these for the textured/weathered look?
