This was my first attempts at any boxes like this. I must say they are much harder than you would think. They can give you fits if they aren’t fitting correctly. Anyways, they are both made from Pecan with walnut trim. The handle on the first box is curved in 3 directions. You can’t really tell it that much in the pics, but I kind of tried to make the lid “float”. The second box is really nothing special. I really liked the grain and made it continous around the box. Thanks for looking. Any comments are welcome.

These are nice looking boxes and it looks like you did a pretty good job on the construction and finish.

Great job! Boxes are definitely harder than they look.

Nice boxes. Great wood choice and the wrap around is a LOT harder then it looks. Great job. Like the stylish handle on the first one also. All in all a great design and build combo.

Keep it up.

Nice boxes. I always like a box when the grain wraps around. (nice touch). Your handle on the first box is pretty cool.
