Preview of Carving

Postby E-lad » Tue Nov 25, 2014 5:38 pm

Youngest son asked me to make him something with our surname initial for him to pass down to his new son, so I made a keepsake box. I've carved a design on the lid, on the front of the box and on the sliding tray that goes in the box.
It's made of Cherry and black Walnut.
She's not finish sanded yet and some details to complete, but here she is so far:

Almost finished carving the front design

And the lid I finished this morning

There is not a single piece of metal in the entire project and I'm now designing a hinge for the lid that is all wooden. It's not that easy to get right, so I'm taking a break......

Later!

Nice work, Dale. I'm sure it will be treasured.
