Someone needs to teach this kid how to use a chair. 🤣 The finish on the chair has softened to a nice brushed sheen, the second pic doesn't do the finish justice. First pic by @elisabew #richmakesarocker #sculptedrocker

These should have been done over a month ago, but life can become busy and limit the shop time. Despite the small size, I made almost as many mistakes as I did on the rocking chair. They were different kinds of mistakes, though, and they taught me a lot more about how to be a good woodworker and how to bring the design in my head to life (spoiler alert: I'm still not there yet). I can't wait to get these (long overdue) thank you gifts into the hands of their recipients. #richmakesthankyouboxes #woodworking #woodenboxes #yesmyphotobackdropismadeofprinterpaper

The elephant may have had a little much, should probably take his keys. Bought these over a month ago in North Carolina, finally set them up! #partyanimals #woodcarving #madeinkenya #globalcrafts

The zebrawood ended in disaster, so I improvised with some wood I had in the shop. Maple body, I-dont-know lid, and they'll be tied together with a mahogany tray. Fabric by @valoriwells, provided by @elisabew. #woodworking #woodenboxes #richmakesthankyouboxes

Hmm, it's a good thing to let the wood inform the design, but I don't think splitting down the middle and telling me how tall the box will be is what that means. 😖 #woodworking #richmakesthankyouboxes #woodenboxes

Issue 1 layouts started. I'm comfortable writing, this is where my skills start to get shaky. But I'm going to tackle every aspect of this to knock of the creative rust. #comics #makingcomics #untitledspaceadventure

First box done. Cherry (from the same boards as the rocker) for the body and handle, figured walnut (that's been sitting in my lumber rack waiting the right project) for the lid. My beginner's attempt at styling shots. 😬#richmakesthankyouboxes #woodworking #woodenboxes
