This is a beautiful box, Nick. I like the design and you’ve done a fine job on it.

Very nice looking box and wood selection. Why the different design in drawer pull and lid lift?

I thought the thinner rounded pull for the drawer balanced the piece. Just ascetics…

Hello Nick, very nice box.

I have a question for you… Your project shots are very professional with the clear white background. How did you (or your camera jock) achieve this? Is it careful lighting and exposure with a white backdrop or have you worked soe magic in photoshop? If it’s the latter then I’d be interested in a tutorial on how you got that result.

Thanks, and again, very nice box!

I use the lasso tool in photoshop to cut out the box and delete the background. Pretty simple just takes a bit of time….

Hi Nick,
Your builds are so nicely done! I have one question for ya’. I’ve noticed that for some of your boxes, little pillows are included for holding watches. With some of the stuff that I have made, that would have been something nice to add. To you make those to fit or order them somewhere?
Thanks for sharing your projects. They give me something to aspire to be able to build.
