Nice effort and it’s your own? Nice woods in the boxes. Maybe some walnut inlay for accent?

Those are some nice boxes. I think you did a fine job and the wood is attractive. As you pointed out, the original design was Tony (woodshaver). I may make one this year.

Great job on your boxes David! Love the butternut spalted maple. I need to make one more for my son. He wants to put one in a consignment shop. I’m not sure how much they would be worth but I’ll leave that up to him. He’s in North Carolina.
Nice to see your work!

Great job Dave. Tony’s idea is cool. He gave me a set of pins when I visited him, that I will use to build one soon. Just have to be cautious the grandchildren. Nice selection of lumber.

It’s an outstanding gun lock box.
