Another excellent box Greg,

Lots of financial luck on your show. I think you are providing variety in your style of crafting which should get more response and different financial levels.

Greg, I don’t recall a carved box with a drawer before. What a nice layout for a watch collection. I like the idea and hope it finds a buyer. Knock ‘em dead in Dallas or wherever. Keep boxing and keep posting.

That is a sweet box! The swirl pattern on this one is one of my favorites. I really like the small lift. The thing that really caught me is that I completely missed the drawer when it was closed. That is some fine work sir.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

That is one of the most “eye catching” boxes I’ve seen. Extremely well done!!

Thanks everyone.

Thomas…the clocks I recently made are the first pieces I have ever brought to a show that were under $100. I am eager to see how they sell. If the don’t sell I can always throw them in as Lagniappe to close a box sale.

Big Al….good to hear from you. I hope all is well. This is my fourth box with a drawer. I like their look but I really need to redesign my sculpting /downdraft table to accommodate a larger piece as this one. I constantly vary the height and angle of the table to sculpt and this size was pushing the limit for a comfortable carving angle.

deon…much appreciated…

cdaniels…thanks. I haven’t decided on a price as of yet but I am thinking someone around $750 – $800

Hawaiilad… the drawer is a good feature but when I also have my style of raided legs and sculpted curves at the bottom the height of the entire box really increases.

Randy…thank you. The cypress keeps it fairly light because of the size. Two of the other boxes I made with drawers were approximately the same size but made with marblewood for one and cocobolo for the other. Their weigh was quite greater than the cypress ones.

Hey Monte…I have been enjoying your posts of the beetle kill pine pieces you have been creating. I keep wondering how something that size would look sculpted.

MarkTheFiddler…thanks. that is one of my favorite sculpting design patterns also but I don’t use a drawer that often…I guess it is obvious since I have used it on many boxes…and I am glad because they sell.

PaulDoug…thank you

Another great looking box Greg. I really like the drawer feature, it adds a lot of “extra value” to the box.

Another thought? Looks like you box makers are taking an idea and stepping up the ladder?
