Early this year, i finally got around to making some of these boxes. I have seen several throughout the years and have always been intrigued by them. I want to give a shout out to Andy, his boxes got me interested in this process years ago. When covid hit, and our usual activities were somewhat limited, i decided to try my hand at filming some of my work in the shop. I created a youtube channel and did a 4 part serious on making one of these boxes. The box from those videos found a special home after one of my coworkers contracted covid and passed away. Another coworker recently retired and was the recipient of one of the boxes pictured above. I included the youtube link for anyone who is interested in watching those videos. I have made more videos since, and continue trying to improve.

Nice variations on the typical boxes we all make – a great challenge for anyone.

Great boxes Randy.
Very cool videos too. I like part two when you are showing the shaping.
Cool job and keep it up.
