In researching bandsaw boxes I came across Michael Cullen’s work. His designs and carving skills are really amazing….here’s my first attempt at one of his boxes.

The blank I started with has birdseye maple on the faces so I kept this box free of carving and painting…other than the top and inside. Those are both milk painted…chocolate brown and barn red. The birdseye is finished with shellac and then everything got a coat of wax applied with steel wool.

These boxes are super fun to build and I’m hoping to produce a few more as my skills improve.

Thanks for looking.

I like the unusual, off the wall design. Grain and color looks nice. Great job.
