One of the many special boxes I made for Carol Ferguson of Pincher Creek. Carved, painted wood with oxidized copper and many embellishments.
My husband Kent helped with the construction of these boxes by cutting out all of the pieces for me to assemble and then paint and embellish...Thanks Kent:)
This box is made from layers of plywood, glued up and then cut into this oval shape. I refinished it and made it very special. It has a great home! with friends.
