Thanks poospleasures, I watched a lot of Paul Sellers and Christopher Schwartz videos and mangled a whole bunch of scrap wood before I got that to the point I could make those boxes. Just when I thought I was really getting somewhere, I discovered how difficult and expensive it is to get tools that will get you square and accurate.

Hey Jerry, I agree the piece would easily sell…what do you think about pricing?

Okay, this is a late night off the cuff response, I will do a better response tomorrow, but for now, just take a look at this link

http://www.etsy.com/shop/DendroCo?ref=l2-shopheader-name

you see a lot of rustic and dystopian type furniture and reclaimed stuff on etsy selling for outrageous prices like what you see above

The great thing about etsy is that you can look a people’s stores and see what products they are selling the most of. Use this info to get a start on it, and I will post more info tomorrow.

Your walnut box was/is just wonderful!

Hi Jerry. Impressive projects you have posted. I just read your blog on the invisible hinge and think I will give it a go on my next box project. Thanks for sharing.
