Details? What are the woods and the finish? They look really nice.

Good work! Nice detail!

Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit drinking.

I’ll have to make one that will hold a 2 liter co-cola.

These were scrap bin projects. One is made of cherry and walnut. The other is made of elm and walnut. The handles are made of cherry and walnut. The finish is shellac. The design is based on one I saw in Wood Magazine. The plans called for surface glueing the handles. That didn’t look too strong so I morticed them in. The plans also called for the ends of the boxes to be rounded, but I dont have a bandsaw so I left them square. The corners are pegged rebbet joints. When I make them next time they will be either dovetailed or mitered with keys. I made them in one day and gave them away the next day.

Agreed, for me I like the handles design, I shall use this design next time I am making a box.
