Title says it all. I suppose next BoxGuy will want piano hinges. ;)
Red Oak w/Walnut splines.

BTW, with all of BoxGuys talk about music boxes, I got an idea for an old acquaintance of mine from Vietnam whom I owe some serious payback. I’m thinking of making him an IED Box. That should surprise him when he opens the lid. ;) Well, I can’t be Holy all of the time.

Cool looking splines. You’ve come a long way in a short time. Nice.

I may be able to help you, I just pulled out an old box of ” ARMY stuff”

Sure enough there is a couple of booby trap switches, amazing what to find 40 odd years later !!

Might be a bit of a problem mailing it to you these days though !!

Steve, this is a very nice job. I really do like the splines and the rounded corners. The differing lengths seem to frame the sides very well. Looks to me like you really are ready for the piano hinges, but you will have to cut off some of the top with that process. Thanks for the shout out. I appreciate it, but of course it is you who deserve the credit. I liked the “Flight of the Bumblebee” music box tune…wonderful range and rhythem. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Steve, that’s a beautiful box.
