That last bamboo box took me less then 12 hours. If this box was solid ebony it still wouldn’t be worth 5k, or 500 for that matter. I think there should be a challenge. Make a box that is similar, any material because wood is wood for the most part, and see how long it takes. In my opinion he is lying to his clients as well as steeling from them. It’s not right no matter how you look at it. I can guarentee you that I can make that box, with hand cut dovetails, a tighter fit between the drawers, etc in less then 40 hours. It is crazy to say that because you went to School X or had a role in Fine woodworking magazine that for some magical reason your crappy box is worth far more then 85% of the world would charge to make the exact same box. This isn’t art. It’s a box. Dennis Zongkers most recent box is art in every aspect of the word. I bet he isn’t asking 5k for it either. If this is art I’m Michaelangelo and people owe me millions
I’m surprised his little trays aren’t worth 1200 bucks. LOL
