A small selection of boxes I finished this week with many more to come.

1st is silky oak and jarrah lid.
2nd is scented maple and light blackwood lid.
3rd is huon pine with walnut lid.
4th is camphor laurel.
Last two pics show two of the boxes closed…

And a couple of photos of the rosewood tea box… closed and open…

I love that rosewood Larry! I also liked the way you set up the box for the teabags. I might use that Idea. It gives me a great excuse to make a new box!

These are all fantastic. A nice range of product for your customers! The contrasting woods are interesting and help make each box one-of-a-kind. Very nice all around.

I am not sure what it is about boxes I like, maybe it is the deceptively simple look of them. I have made a few and they are not as simple as they look.

Great job , clean and easy to look at .

Nice work Larry they all should be great sellers, but I have to agree the rosewood one is a stand out in the group.

Larry, these are all beautiful and I love the wood. You are such a productive craftsman. These are going to sell like crazy.
