This box here is a try at a different angle on my saw. The top is made from 1/8” zebrawood the sides made from wood i got off a pallet at work it looks like cherry but who knows. If u look real hard u might be able to see the splines. This is on of the boxes i made so far where i got the hinges right or good enough.

Good job Ike. Those angles can be tricky at times.

Great box. Like the 5 sided design. Nice pallet wood re-use.

Keep it up.

Nice job on the angles. I really like the way you reuse what was once a hard working, rough looking pallet and retire it to a beautiful, finished piece of art.

Nice looking box, your angles are very clean, wood choice is nice, I have some of that zebra wood, but have not worked with it yet, helps to see what it looks like in action, great job on a difficult design, I’m still trying to perfect the 90 degree angle, thanks for sharing

-- It's Mic Keep working and sharing
