This is my latest attempt at a slightly different box. So as a prototype it will get some minor adjustments and may eventually become a slightly larger version. Made of mahogany & black walnut.

Very cool looking box! I like the walnut/mahogany combo, and the way the legs are mounted—very unique!

Richard your idea of a prototype is extremely advanced from my idea of a prototype. This project is amazing.

Great job. I cannot see any reason to modify this, but that is not to say it can’t be improved in some way.
I love it.
Thank you for sharing such an amazing piece with us.

Great looking Box, This certainly is an eye catcher! Love the legs! Makes me think of Pallbearers! Please don’t take offense to that comment.

It’s always interesting to see something different at box design. I like those side supporters and three layer top lid.

I hope you all realize what a boost it gives to the ego when someone likes what you try to do. My idea of modifications are to refine the details to make it work on a slightly larger box.m And Woodshaver, no offense taken. Now that you mention it I see what you mean! Thank to all of you for the comments, they really help and are appreciated!

Great box, but it does look like 4 people playing some kind of footsie-handsie game in a box that they are carrying. ;-) That makes me like it even more, actually.

Howard, just took a look at your site & the projects. You have some really great projects on there. I got you beat on years working though. Started when I was about 12 years old and have now gotten to 81. Its been a great ride so far!

I really enjoy all the comments and Ocelot and Woodshaver you seem to have the same slant on the ideas!! When you are working on something you often only see your perspective so it helps greatly to find out what others may see in the work. Thanks. This whole thing started when I picked up the piece of scrap which became the sides of the box. Had no idea where it would go from there.
