« Part 2: Two towers of boxes. Part 3 of Making boxes. series no next part

Just a few more pics, showing the finished carcasses and the inserted lids.
I cut grooves inside the boxes, top and bottom to fit the base and the coved lid.

Morning Larry,

The boxes look great
Not only are the boxes displaying running or continious grain flow, it looks like you have individually book matched each lid as well ? (see note below)
There must be an excellent aroma wafting from the workshop as well.

A most impressive display!

P.S. Just checked the previous blog….......ignore the above question

-- Regards Robert

You do wonderful work and are so efficient and productive at the same time.
