This is a four walled box I hand shaped on my bandsaw then smoothed with fine French rasps before carving patterns from my imagination into the sides and top; not really sure where the carving inspiration came from, but was actually thinking of strawberries and raindrops at the time of carving… You can use it to store small items or quantities of special things; the lid fits very snugly on this one, maybe not airtight, but close, if that influences your idea for storage. It was bandsawn from a block of incense cedar. I handcarved the body and lid of this box to add some interest before milkpainting it a forest green on the outside and two shades of blue on the inside. The lid also has some nice fingerholds carved into its rim, making it comfortable to hold while removing it from the box. The milkpaint is topcoated with polyurethane varnish for protection both inside and out. Some natural inclusions may be found in this box such as knots, small cracks and checks that do not compromise the integrity of the piece. I carve my sign in the bottom of each box so you will always remember who cut, shaped, carved, and finished this small fine piece. One of a kind; store your stuff!
