Default Stepped Outside my comfort zone

This little box is outside of my comfort zone. Thoughts or critiques? Should I stay in my comfort zone or expand it a bit? Metal effects paint, texturing, different shape, etc.

Wow that was a huge step. There are many different elements going on there and they all blend nicely. I like the style, proportions, details, and colors used. To me keep at it and expand some more. Job well done.

I think it looks great Cody! Quite a ways from my comfort zone for sure. I just got back from my woodturners meeting yesterday. Had a guy showing some bowls he made critiquing his work. They looked great from our eyes! That's what's great about using your imagination and coming up with great stuff! Nice work!

Wow, that sure looks good!

Are or do you sell your bowl/box/teapot creations?

Thanks Hank and Terry.

Hank, I do not actively market and sell stuff. I will make things for people who request it and my wife will drag me to one more or two craft shows a year to reduce the volume of stuff we have around. She maintains a “store” in our rec room for her friends and acquaintances. PM me if you have a specific interest in something.

That looks really great, Cody ... I love it !!!! . What wood/material is it made of ?

Just wondering how you accurately squared it up before turning it ...

... and also how you put the random circles on the square sides.
