Nice one or should I say three.
I certainly like the style and I am sure they will sell quickly.

Very nice Greg.
You know, I get so caught up in looking at your newest design series that I sometimes take the flawless joinery for granted. Design aside, your boxes are about as perfect as could be imagined. Bring the design element back and they are just …. well ….. perfect.

They seem to have grown from a seed rather than being assembled from separate pieces of wood.

I haven't understood the time thing since they stopped with the …... days ago or ….... hours ago. That made sense. I have no idea why they changed it.

Greg,

Paul said it really well. You have evolved. From the waves, to the layered wood to the bombey style. Each piece is a beauty.

Hope you give your commission first pick? LOL!

Great work
Quilted Mable gotta love it!

now Time,
Do not be too concerned about the time, its an old confidence trick/scam invented by the swiss many years ago.
I think the scam was first discovered by the military so they tried to get things done by using 24Hr time,... that failed too!
No doubt the introduction of metric time will fix everything

BTW where is the third box !! or are we now being subjected to optical illusions as well.

Greg,
Yup, Paul said it very well. I'm particularly taken with #1, though. It has a really nice balance and harmony going. The woods and the details seem to just flow into one another. That level of harmony is difficult to achieve, and you make it look easy.

Beautiful, as always. Plus, I'm jealous! It takes me 3 days to think of what I'm gonna do… LOL

Rob…If you look closely at the grain configuration patterns of the Maple on the second and third boxes you will notice they are different from each other. The small details make the distinction in telling them apart.

Thanks Roger…that is a very kind and most generous comment coming from you, the master box maker. I always try to evolve and improve on what I create…sometime it works and sometimes, well…not so much

Doc…thakns.. the customer wanted a hinged top box and I just picked one and am shipping it as soon as I get the final balance of payment…

Roger…taking the three days for thinkin and relaxicating is a good thing. I always have liked to push myself to the limits and I don't know if I really remember how to relax….I figured that is what being dead is for.

Signa…thanks. I always try to create a good smooth pattern with the carving so they feel flowing to the touch.

Thanks Grizzman…now I gotta find another super nice piece of Quilted maple. It is never available anywhere I go locally and I need to stop at some out of town lumberyards when traveling to shows. Hope all is good and your back is doing better. Be sure to tell Susan that Carol and I say hi…!

hellavuwreck…thanks..that means a lot

Lee…your comments are much appreciated

deon…again, thanks…!

Wow Greg, I can't add much to what has already been said. I think your boxes are getting better every time you post a new one, I like it more that the previous one. How are the last two boxes lidded, with a hinge pin or with hinges?

hey Bill…thanks. I try to make each one better than the last one but it doesn't always work out that way. I used 95 degree stop hinges on both

What Paul said about joinery…ditto. Flawless workmanship with beautiful woods. Jaw dropping. Thanks for sharing it with us.
