SJG, I like the six box projects you have posted. They all are experimental and interesting with an eye to the utilitarian. They were fun to see. I think it will be interesting to see how your work evolves.

I should think there may be several variations possible for your “Shabby Chic” form. It has a certain simplicity that might be fun to try with thinner sides and a more complex design for the extended corners.

What I like best about your work is that it has a sense of play. You seem to be having a good time just experimenting and trying out new ideas to see where non-conventional approaches will lead you. You are building really interesting boxes and seem to be having fun doing it.

For some added ideas you might glance through these. And for technical tips you might enjoy using the index with this project Keep boxing and keep posting.
