Jim has been working with his hands since he was a teenager. For the last 20 years woodworking has been his passion.  He has studied various disciplines from cabinet making, veneering, marquerty, inlay and curved shapes. It was with curved shapes that he found direction for his work. The process starts with selecting the wood for the front on the box, displaying the best grain and coloring. Most boxes are made by gluing individual boards into a block.  Jim cuts out the basic shape of the box, then sculpts out the hard lines so the eye flows from one surface to another.  After much refinement, the box is sanded to bring out the grain and then polished to enhance the luster and shine of the wood.
Payment can be made via Money order, cash or personal checks; shipment will not be completed until checks have cleared.
