In the new Holiday Edition of Woodcarving Illustrated 2010 I have had the honor to have my “Stylish Box, #1” in this edition… it is an eight page article on how I assembled the box, carved the roses and it also includes templates. I hope you enjoy reading it

I’ll be looking forward to being able to hold that issue in my hands, when I receive it.

It’s a very well done tutorial.

I also love the Rose pattern, because I love to carve Roses.

You deserve the recognition, because of your superb talent.

Hi JorgeG, thank you

I would recommend Pfeil carving gouges, you can get them from woodcraft.
