    These were mostly made with the maple from the tree felled in my buddy's neighbor's yard. Secondary woods are santos mahogany, Gabon ebony and African blackwood.

    This takes box making from a craft to an art. Nicely done.

    Your material blending is spot on.
    Your woods compliment each other making it more than just boxes. They remind me of small Homes from different cultures.

    Very nice, cool choice of knob on second one...very unique. I like how both are elevated on the tapered corners. Classy!

    Nicely done Steve. I really like the first one. What's the gap for?

    @ripjack13 Artistic expression. I have a few notebooks I just do sketches of possible designs for cabinets, segmented turnings, boxes, knives, etc. with different design features. Most never get made, but some I figure might be worth the effort and give it a whirl.

    Been said before, but wanted to say it again: art! Really fantastic. Brings that wood to life.

    Gorgeous work! I especially love the Japanese feel of the first box, but they’re both fantastic!
