Boxes i made for a good friends’s kids. Made from a box elder log with the red in it. Trimed the lids in purple hart and the the other in walnut. Two coats of danish oil and a coat of poly. Made the finger joints with the jig that i made from the idea from horky’s post.

Nice looking boxes. The frames really set them off.

Fine work. Love the boxes as well as the photography. Is that a lake in the background?

Nice work and also a spectacular grain effect result.

All the joints including the fingers neat as!

Reinforcing Wayno1’s comment, a very well framed photo shoot it should be used as a guide to “how to present your Project at its best”

You have set the standard!

P.S. You must have fun mowing all that grass!
