I love carving waves into wood. Here is a new box: I carved the maple top with absolutely no regard for how it would integrate into a box. We have discovered how wonderful magnets are as closures, so the lid is held to the purpleheart legs by small magnets to give it a floating effect. It's for sale now under "constructed boxes." One day Tom will calmly kill me with my own chisels for continuing to carve tops without any plan for how they will work as box lids. Another new carved top (still unfinished) is shown below- also of maple. I was thinking of a manta ray as I carved it.
