It started with my house. We had a pretty walkway. Beautiful doorway. Lovely foyer with nice appointments and fresh paint. And a dog-ugly, sun faded, cheap-o, plastic box covering the doorbell chimes.
This had to be fixed. My bride loves roses, so I made this box to replace that plastic eye sore.
I got much better after this, but it was a nice improvement. Rose is made of basswood. Each pedal is carved separately, then glued back together. The surround is made of maple, and I cut out some vines to allow the sound to escape.
