I might be one of the last smokers who’s not making a secret out of it.
I think this is a very nice box! (although I roll my own)

This is the first time I see such wooden case. Good project idea, and a great way to use scraps.
The main thing is… being in the shop building something. Well done Stelios !

Best,
Serge

This is a nice small box. For those who don’t smoke it could hold a deck of cards and a pair of dice. It could be a gift box for something like a new wallet. There’s probably a lot of things that this box could be used for. Boxes make nice gifts, whether small or not.

Very nice job. I don’t smoke (anymore) but my wife does. I may have to give one of these boxes a try.

After 38 years smoking, it only took a heart attack to make me stop! That said…..I could find a lot of uses for a neat little box like this. Well done!

steliart, That is a very well constructed little Box…..The shape and hinged lid shows great wood working skill and ability. I believe when we look at a project closely, the Art of making something is revealed in all its wonder…..wooden projects always have that effect on me. GREAT PROJECT!!!!!!! I am a non smoker but I loved the project. Picture 5 was quite clever, it made the little box look huge like a refrigerator.

Regards,

Cliff.

Thank you guys for commenting, as for the hinges it was my mistake I did not take any shot of the back side to show them… I used two tiny hinges with brass screws and because of the lacquer coating they kinda vintage and they look ok. If I was to do this again I would use those spring type hidden hinges that they put on pen boxes.
