This is very similar to my last box…but with a few minor changes and experiments with the hope of refining my new technique. I was initially inspired to do this after seeing some microscopic photography…but others have visualized it as a sponge, bullet holes, driftwood, swiss cheese and numerous other things. It is fun to see how others view something we create and it all keeps the designs and fun of creating my stuff flowing.

The holes were created using my Foredom carver and my Dremel. It is a slow process but fun…and I easily get lost in time sitting at my work table.

I worked on it until about 2am this morning with the intention of going outside and viewing the meteor shower display that was supposed to happen…but at 2am it was very cloudy and i couldn’t see any stars whatsoever….but thats a differrent story.

This box is also Louisiana sinker Cypress and is 10×7x4”
The finish is lacquer.

I like it – reminiscent of Spanish architect Gaudi who designed Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Thanks for posting.

It’s awesome how you made it look like it’s natural.

Thanks…. Each box is a learning experience…some what to do to improve the next one and some what not to do.
However it is always fun and a learning experience.
All of us woodworkers are a very fortunate group of people because we have something we enjoy doing so very much. I think about this so often when I am around people that go to their regular boring jobs each day and have absoolutely no interests or hobbies they are passionate about…

I like that! Can’t say I’m as fond of that truly nasty looking coffee cup though.
