My 4th Box with Kolrosing

This is my latest crime against kolrosing. The Random pattern on this box came from my own brain and it might even resemble it a little. My thought was that this plain little box needed a lot of pattern to make it anywhere near interesting and it also gave me a good kolrosing workout with the goal of improving my skills. Unfortunately I did rush this one a bit and made more than enough bad cuts to keep me humble. On the positive side, the lid which also functions as a spinning top works even better than all the previous ones. That said, my aim is to get better at kolrosing and not top turning!

I only have three more boxes to go for these small family Christmas gifts. I am trying to decide who should receive which boxes. I’ll probably just number them and draw names. I just hope they weren’t expecting one of those new Corvettes with the center mounted engines!

Meget fint, Mike. Looks like some serious cutting.

Dear Mr G

The results of you MRI and CT scan have analysed and a report has been prepared.

We are very pleased to report from your images that you presented you are fit and well.

In conclusion if you were to submit another three images before Christmas the “Clinic” would be most impressed with the opportunity to again analyse the results for you again.

-- Regards Rob

Now who’s being modest? That is great Mike. I can see why you will have a hard time choosing who gets what. Just keep them all and give them a spinning top. LOL.
My first impression of your design made me think of a maze.

Beautiful work, and it’s got me thinking I need to add kolrosing to the list of things I need to try someday.
