This is a two walled box I call a pod, because it reminds me of certain types of seed pods. You can call it whatever you want and use it to store small items or quantities of special things. It was bandsawn from a block of incense cedar that is known for its strong but clean odor. I hand carved the box lid and exterior of the box with gouges; I am not certain where I got this pattern, but often get my ideas while listening to music….this looks like something Hendrix to me. I still listen to him as the music reminds me of my 60’s high school days. I also carved some soft fingerholds and other exclamations on the lid sides, fun. I finished this one both inside and out with milk paint; dark green outside and deep red inside. I made the outside coats a bit thin to allow a little hint of the wood color to show thru, thinking an antique look. 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.
