These boxes are so cool…but they must generate a lot of dust.. I hope you are wearing a dust mask and other safety gear..

degoose, you hit the nail on the head when you said alot of dust….I built a downdraft table and also wear a trend dust helmet. It makes me enjoy hand sanding because the hand sanding dust is much easier to control compared to shaping with the angle grinder.

Got to say I’m impressed… I looked back over your projects from start to current and your skills are greatly improving.

Have to say I like the most current boxes the best. The older ones feel more like eroded rock.. These however are very wind swept and fluid looking.. Awesome.

Wow, that’s a beautiful box. I like the way ripples come across from both ends.

saweeeeeeeeeeeet looking box, is there a way we can see the inside though? It would be nice if there is maybe a tray inside with the same design on it.

What a beautiful box Greg I love the colour & finish it looks like a slab of rippled toffee. Sculpting works magic with the grain doesn’t it?
