I made this box for Marilyn from a plan and modified it to fit candles instead of a bottle of wine. The ends and top are Lacewood and the sides are Curly Maple. The handle is Bloodwood and is set into American Sycamore. The pins are Brass. The finish is multiple coats of Deft lacquer.

This is a great box. Where have I seen this before? I think I have a plan for a similar box. Your version is really nicely done.

Great work, Andy. I just love your small boxes! How about a picture that shows the whole box?

Nice work Andy. Just make sure they do not carry the box by the handle. It might slip open, or break the grooves.

Very nice Andy. It reminds me of a Doug Stowe box. I built a similar one for my dad. Yours is more elegant by far. Nice work!

This is the first time that I have seen your work. You are a great craftsman. Interesting that you use the spray on Deft finish so much. Will have to consider it. Usually between tung oil and wax, I am a happy camper. The cutting boards are awesome too. I am a big fan of angle grinders and I see you are too.

Great work!
Regards, Ellen

Andy: That is one fine lopoking candle box. We plan on making some at our woodworking club and so I went looking for some that have been made.

Very nice.

Thanks Karson, not my design of course, but a winner and easy to build.
