Andy, thanks for allowing us to come along for the ride on the construction of this box. It has meant a lot to me personally to follow along on the tutorial. I can honestly say that I have learned more about box construction from your tutorial than all of the books that I have read on box making. It has been a wonderful trip and I have enjoyed every post.

Wow, Andy! Being that I go to the dunes almost weekly to go to the beach, I can honestly say that you nailed the look.

Andy you have a knack for teaching, everything is explained so completely. From now on when ever I make a box I ‘ll say I learned it from Andy.

I got behind watching your blog while working on mine, but what I’ve seen is fantastic. Now I’ll go back and catch up.
Your boxes are an inspiration, and I’m anxious to try your techniques. Again awesome work
