This box was made to match a tatto the guy has on his arm.

The box is walnut, the top is maple and the handle is locust.

I save the locust from the firewood pile.

You did a Great Job there. How did you carve out the bull?

I know it’s not up to the quality that I see on here, but I’m proud of it and the person that got the box loved it.

I learn more with each one.

I like it and you should be especially proud of the sculpting. You are forgiven for the CNC carving since you built the machine! Save more locust as I would love to get my hands on some.

cw, as andy said you should be really proud, and i know you are, and there isnt some wood working line of what is good and what is not, this is a place where we always should support what we each do and what we try to do for others here, i have always enjoyed your work and will continue to do so, you do mighty fine work, and the one who got this box will never forget you for it, its all about the love…....grizz
