Great job. I really like the look of the oversize box joints. The Purple heart buttons sets it off.

Keep it up

Very nice. I’ve been looking for an example of a small box with the Greene & Greene joints that I can hide remote controls in. You’ve inspired me!

Amazing little box! I really like the detail of the G&G joinery.
Thx for sharing. Favorited for blatant design plagarism in the future.

weather you knew it or not your joinery is from Greene and Greene and look well done. Great little box….

Very nice box AND salad set.
She should love it. If she doesn’t, I’ll send you my address.
