Nice work on the box. Love that beech wood.
I’m with Thos. on this – if the customer is happy, it is good.

Nice box. No, I’m not going to ask you about that sippy cup on your bench. You can’t make me!

Hey, James, this is a great little box; I just love small wooden boxes! I’m interested in that border treatment – how did you do that?

Hi Don. Thanks for your comments. The edge trim is glued-on pre-fab from my local DIY, available in many styles, all pine. I made this box before I knew what a router was, I mentioned I would make it differently now, maybe a nice champher, thumbnail or even a roman ogee.Thanks Don.

I like the box quite a bit, well done. Did you glue the bottom onto the frame with a simple butt joint?

Great box. And the decorations are also great.

Hi Duckarrow types,
thanks, the bottom is fixed with dowels in the corner posts and screws from the under side. The screws sit in countersinks hidden with wood putty.

Very nicely done. I like the attention to detail. I am sure Gorby’s “owner’ really like it, too!
