A very diplomatic request to an oft-recurring problem. Thanks for re-posting, Andy.

Good post Andy and you are so right…........ I have seen many “Andy boxes” and shamefully as you say, no credit given. With the time and effort that you put into your blogs and I am sure you have answered many pm’s with questions, you deserve alot of credit. I for one surly do appreciate what you have given and as soon as time permits, I want to put your instructions to use and create my own “Andy box”...... with much credit to the person that deserves it!!!

Thanks for reposting the link

Your boxes are the best Andy, the least someone can do is give you credit and thanks for your fantastic design and giving attitude.

Andy,
Your tutorial has been an inspiration to many of us. Congratulations for the 40,000 readers who have read it. I most certainly can be counted in those numbers. I have made about a dozen boxes after seeing your posts.
My wife keeps suggesting I make a bookshelf to keep them on in one location.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again… Thanks !
Looking forward to your next box…

Andy with this many responses to your amazing tutorial I believe you should seriously consider have a book published. I’m sure it would be a hit and credit to your skill of box making…BC

Personally I don’t call them “Art boxes” anymore. They are “Andy boxes”.

I totally agree with you Andy, if someone copies or are inspired by something it should be acknowledged.

I also agree with blackcherry about looking into a book. If your interested in that I think you could pull it off.

Andy, there are so many ways you could have phrased this…

You are a class act and a gentleman.
You are an amazing artist and so generous in sharing your detailed tutorial.
You deserve recognition and respect for all of the above.

I totally agree with you there Andy. Acknowledgement should always be given when the project is strongly inspired by another’s work and none deserve it more than you.

I wonder if Maloof felt that same way. So many times people don’t give credit to the mind that saw something no one else ever could. Maybe it’s a complement to be so inspired by your creation that they just want to be YOU. It will never happen. Anyone can be a craftsman, the mind of an artist, that’s a gift from God! It’s a pleasure to be in your company….........

Thanks for the support.
I get a fair amount of mail from new members looking for answers and it would help them out if everyone who posts a box, include the link to the tutorial.
Dont get me wrong, I dont mind answering questions, but often the link is what is needed.
If you dont find your answer, then feel free to drop me a line.

I will look into having a book made, but no promises :-)

I can’t think of anything to say that has not already been said above. I really appreciate your time so generously given to others. Your work is extraordinary and I personally appreciate viewing it.

Thank you and all of the others that have so willingly given of your time so that others could gain from your experience and talent.
