The basic pattern for this came from an old 1985 Tom Crabb box making book. I altered the legs and added the red lip color. It was a fun box to make

How cool – how many pre teen and early teen girls would love a present like this. Looks like it would hold a lot of lipstick. Awsome.

Really cool looking box. Saw this in person at the Woodworking Show and it really caught my eye. Great idea.

Look what somebody might miss if they told you not to give them any lip. I forget the name of the lady in MASH who had these. Was it “Hot Lips Callahan or Monohan”? Regardless, you did a beautiful build Cathy. A fun piece.
