Great work on this. Love this style, Andy has shared with us. How far from edge do you put the hinge hole to ensure clearance for lid to open? Well done.

Great looking box, I really like the wood contrast on the lid. That really makes the box pop.

Looks great!
One has been on my to-do list ever since Andy posted his first one.
How cool is it to have a box named after you?
Yours turned out really nice.
Well done.

Incredibly beautiful wood combination and those waves are magnificant. This type of box is on my ’’got to do’’ list for some time – I realy must try it.

That’s a beautiful box—I love the wood combo you used! Could be that I’m hungry, but it reminds me of fudge—mmmmm!

Rob, nice work. You have included many of the features we have come to expect from Andy’s work. Layering of wood, pin pivot, shaping, and finish. It does need something on the inside too. Andy has made that part of what he does. If you are going to emulate someone, you should choose a master to emulate. In this case you have chosen well. Andy is truly a master box maker. Great job! Keep boxing and keep posting.
