I saw this box in a magazine for router bits so i bought the bits and made this box. It was not two hard the legs was a little tricky to put on the box. I used this box to practice, the next one i will make will be out of walnut. Sorry the last picture is blurry

That’s a good looking box. When I first saw it I thought maybe it was made from pre-milled crown moulding. I particularly like the paint job and decorations. I’m looking forward to seeing the walnut version.

Very nice ….I’ve seen those bits advertised as well…now I just might have to invest in them : ) The Pine that you used was also very nice quality and I like the painting and decorative pieces. Bring on the Walnut !!

Very nice finish, not often see one painted. I like it. Did you use the bit from American Eagle? I saw those also, was it very hard to use? Did you use a feather board on your router when passing by the blade?
