Topic tags/keywords: fail andy box question box

I have been an admirer of Andy’s art boxes ever since I first joined LJ. I hope one day to make one. I saw an ‘Andy box’ at a flea market yesterday and was so excited to see one in person. It was maple and walnut on the outside with cherry trays inside (so the tag said). The outside was beautifully sculpted and finished. The handle set in seamlessly. I was telling my husband about these beautiful boxes when I opened it. UGH. The inside trays looked like they were stolen from a traditional style jewelry box, not the beautiful organic lines and curves I was expecting. I was so disgusted! I just wanted to find the maker and ask “What’s WRONG with you?!”
I am calmer now and realize it may not be the maker that did that but a later add on. Still…
Rant over. What are some things you all have seen that just make you want to shake someone? LOL

OK, as usual, I got things mixed up! Crashman’s Finished Art Box was the first art box I saw and fell in love with. It is his boxes that have the interiors I was referring to like this one and this one.

LOL! Too funny. I’m not familiar with these boxes but I enjoyed your story. :)

Have your say...
