Tony’s Hand-crafted Boxes

heartbox2.jpggrapeleafbox2.jpgbutterflybox2.jpgTime to showcase some more of Tony’s exquisite wood pieces. He loves working with cedar, oak, walnut, and cherry. Much of his wood is from Phil Etienne’s Timber Harvest in St. Croix, IN. He also has a few pieces that are enhanced with some exotic woods, like purple heartwood, and some unusual woods such as Kentucky Coffee. The boxes shown here are all scroll-saw designs that he cuts lovingly by hand with his Hawk scroll-saw. Usually he stains first, except for the cedar pieces, and coats them all with multiple layers of beeswax. This gives them a beautiful lustre.
