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…
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!

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