The Astrologer's Box

I took a break after all of the holiday season lasering, so this is my first post in awhile. I’ve been wanting to make a box featuring a completely (all surfaces) carved look for awhile. This one is based on the great box design by @designvh619 . I redesigned the inner liner to have a bigger opening and deeper well. I’ve also grown to like the rounded edges look lately. Anyway, it’s good to be lasering again.

Holy smokes you really did a super nice job on that! Amazing. I haven’t seen that hinge style before but I sure like that too.

Thanks, I developed that hinge for the side doors on the Barn I designed and loved that they were so easy so I use them for all of my boxes.

This is just stunning! I am of course, a huge fan of ancient Egyptian stuff, so there’s that. Your use of understated color is so beautiful.

Ooooh - yeah, stunning. Did you float bird in a pool of resin, or fill in around an engraving? Either way I love the look! :slight_smile:

Would you believe it’s a piece of Baltic Birch painted with Alcohol and Sharpie markers, coated in a sprayed glaze I bought at Home Depot? Nothing too fancy.

Beyond excellent! How many hours of engraving for the whole box if I may ask?
