Another tissue box

I usually do a lot of chip carving on my models, however I had this piece of Spalted Lime (Basswood) where the grain colouring and figure would take too much from the carving. So I decided to make some more tissue boxes using a minimum of carving. I just hate to waste good wood. I think the box looks ok though.

Corner joints are simple rebates with the top simply glued on.

Hi Colin;

I sure hope you’re not referring to human models!

The tissue box looks good.
