I was asked by a client if I could make an exact copy of a box. The original box is shown in the last photo. His dog had mistaken the box for a chew toy.
Creating an exact copy was more challenging than I had expected, but I’m very pleased with how the box turned out. The dimensions are approximately 6.5” x 5.5” x 2”. The cover of the box has an especially beautiful grain pattern.
Thanks for looking,
Roger

your choice of wood definitely takes the original to a wow factor. Great choice.

Very nice job on duplicating the box. The lid really sets this project off.

Looks to me like your copy was better than the original ever was. Nice work.

Roger, that’s just beautiful – the figure in the lid is amazing! Nice shape and it looks like a perfect duplicate of the original. Hope the client wasn’t too upset with the dog, they have a habit of helping themselves to things :) I’m interested in how you did the curvature, too.
