This is my second card box the first one I gave away to a promotion give away. There are 6 different design changes to this 2nd attempt.

1. Making the banding, then the box size to where there is a single diamond in each of the four corners.

2.The center banding was glued into the rabbits as a Zigzag banding.

3.The feet are made much lager with a diamond shape.

4. The bottom edges of the box has a solid ebony banding for protecting the veneer, also for a design balance.

5. Making the pull a little larger with a simpler and cleaner design.

6. The inside of the box has blood wood instead of ebony for the dividers.

The original card box you can see on our company’s web site at http://www.zongkers.com/ to see the changes. Or if you have my book, wooden boxes you can see the differences between the two. At first both boxes look the same, but the small changes do make a deference. Plus it was more fun for me to make them different. Thank you very much for looking and happy woodworking to you.

Dennis, A beauty, no doubt about it. And woodworkers out there, I know how nice this box is as I saw it first hand during my visit to his shop this week. very nicely crafted and a joy to look at with wonderful choices of veneer and color. The banding is beautifully done, and the proportions are spot on ! Take a bow Dennis !

Both boxes look great but I like the changes. I really like what you did with the feet especially.

Dennis You need to replace one of the red decks with a blue dect for better balance.

The rest of the box is right on.

A good point to be made to use some of the small details to allow you to develop the entire box.
