This is a cypress box I made a while back. I enjoy creating pieces with flowing curves (I guess it is the part of me that spent many years of my life in the wood boat restoration business).
I added the extra texture by sandblasting.
The last photo is before I sandblasted it. It looked OK but the blasting gave it so much more character.
It is 10×7x4.5” and finished with spray lacquer.
This box sold very soon after completion.

I really like the 3-d effect of the grain on this one.

Hey Greg,

As per your usual. LOL!

What do you use to sandblast? I’m guessing a enclosed blasting box such as used for metal work? Or a soda blaster?

hey Tom… I use an enclosed cabinet with several different types of blast media based upon wood type. Anything else would have to be outside and messy.

Nice box Greg, as always. Do you just use dowel for your hinge?
