It doesn’t look that simple, but it does look really good.

That is a real beauty and it has a lot of character. Charlie, I’m sure that your wife will always cherish it.

Charlie, I like this box. The hinges are great…good design there. You have made a fine, straight-forward design and a very solidly constructed project. Keep boxing and keep posting.
