My first attempt at an Andy style Art Box, they are made of Maple and Purple Heart. Each one has their own flaws but overall I’m happy how they turned out. A BIG thanks to Andy for his great instructions.

Only the builder ever knows where the flaws are – nicely done.

Great job. Those are some first class boxes. Your results show just how good an instructor Andy is, I think his tutorial is one of the clearest set of instruction I have ever read.

My woodworking mentor puts it thus: “The difference between a new woodworker and a master craftsman is that it is harder to find the craftsman’s inevitable mistakes”.

Nice, the light seems to reflect really well of the middle one.

Nice work Alan. I find that after time the flaws seem to fade but then again it could just be my memory.

Thanks for the comments. Andy’s instructions are great; it must have taken him a long time to document the process. Dan, I was going to track how many hours it took but that only lasted the first two times in the shop and by the time I thought of it again it was too late to remember all the 1/2 hours and 1 hours here and there. I am going to try to remember better next time to track hours just so I have some idea, I assume the pros track there hours very carefully.
