Project Information

Since we seem to be on a box theme lately … here's a piece from the past one of my father's solid walnut desk boxes. Chip carved from top to bottom … except the back.

These are unique, simple in the form of construction the time obviously goes into the carving. Haven't seen very may of these out there. This has been featured in a few national magazines, I'll have to dig up the articles one of these days and post them.

Very nice work.
The front panel reminds me somewhat of a stretcher carving that Peter Follansbee displayed in December.

I think there's probably 40-50 hours in that box carving. That's the issue with stuff like that … so much time goes in it's hard to market them. VERY small demographic that buys them.

I've never really tried chip carving like that - too repetitive for me I don't have the patience either. I stick w/ the more abstract wildlife stuff where I can form a rock where I want a rock and a tree where I want a tree.

Thanks!
