It has been a while since I posted anything.

This is not a single project post but more of a series of projects, our Treasure Boxes. Each Treasure box series is composed of 4 boxes, I have finished and delivered the 1st of our 3rd series and I wanted to share with you our latest youtube video.

First of all, here is the youtube video I wanted to share with you today.

For those who have not seen our treasure box series or want to know more about them here are couple pictures and links.

You can read a post on Treasure box I here

On treasure Box II, I made a blog series and also a project post

For Treasure box III, I started a blog series and will carry on posting the progress while finishing the last 3 boxes of theis series. We also made a base for that one. I am really happy with the result.

Thanks for reading and watching!

Words can’t describe how good these are. Thanks for the inspiration.
I hope they all sell quickly and can’t wait to see what is next.
Good to see you post again Patrice.

These boxes are majestic…..they take my breath away.
This is beyond craftsmanship and woodworking…...this is ART at the highest level.
Congratulations, gentlemen.

I’m sure you have heard all of the adjectives used to describe your incredible work, and glowing as they may be, not close to your level of art. All that AND secret buttons, compartments and hidden areas.

Truly an Easter egg hunt of the best eggs, and playful placements.

Thanks for sharing. The video was great.

Your $10 million box on stand looks like the perfect decorative touch for Bill Gates’ $644 million yacht! (Unfortunately, just because someone has mega-bucks doesn’t mean he has good taste.) Your treasure boxes are jaw-dropping. We have loved your progress blogs. Keep it up!
