Very nice box. I haven’t been brave enough to cut the angled miter keys on a box. They look good.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

I really like nice, clean and simple design. This fits that criteria. Good job.

I like your box bigike. Designed very nicely, and I like the two contrasting woods together.

Fantastic box. Looks great with the angled sides and miter keys. Great job.

Keep it up.

Nice work…. that is a nice plan from Wood Mag. It begs for a little creativity, however.
You certainly took advantage of that!
