Made for a couple of my nephews, to give to their mom for her birthday. OAK, CHERRY STAIN, 8 by 3 1/2 by 3 1/2. Glued except the top bars are also pinned with tooth picks.

I have made several of these in the past year and I think that everything just lined up just perfectly on it.

A nice looking box. Were the nephews able to help at all?

1 is in Virginie and the other in Florida.

Both are furthering their educations and do not have a lot of excess funds right now. Mother lives in England.

Well that would make casually dropping in to help a bit difficult LOL!

Beautiful job. Love the toothpick pins. Also the last photo really puts the box in perspective as to its size. I bet they’ll love it…....and so will she.
