Wooden Boxes

Bunches of boxes, including the one I made when I first learned to carve.  My daughter still thinks its pretty cool.
Two Cubs getting some Honey. - Black walnut door in a oak box.  Carved sometime before 1975.

This was the first real carving I did.  I was able to live with a carver for a week and this is what he taught me.  

We spent the first day using chisels, but after that all the carving was done with a dremel tool.  Turned out to be the best tool for me to carve with.  I've been using one ever since for most of my carvings.

Prong Horn Antelope on Walnut - Made this for my Dad.  He's kept it for 20-30 years.  Since Mom passed away, he's had to cut down on the clutter, so it came back to me.

The dowel on the side opens the box.

Knotty Oak Box- I was working in a custom furniture shop and ran across this knot in a board.  For some reason it appealed to me, and so it became the lid for a Jewlery box.   Oak Knot Hole Box
   
Fish Tail Oak Dovetail Jewlery box - Mother in Law bought me a dovetail jig for Christmas one year and this was the first test of the jig.  Not too bad for a first try.  

The box is Fish Tail Oak, and the top is ??? with a Wenge stripe.

Same box, open- If I was to do it over, I'd ajust the handle to more reflect the other side. Fish Tail Oak Box, Open
   
Turned Jewlery Box- Ash, with Paduke highlights.  My Daughter wanted me to make something for her.  I had a little ash and was able to turn this box for her.  This is the first lidded box I've done.  The top is a little looser than I'd like, but it works just fine.Fish Tail Oak Box, Open
