I’ve recently retired from a 34 year career in the medical field. At one point in my life I apprenticed at a custom furniture shop building high end furniture in Palm Beach County, Florida. I decided to get back into woodworking and started with a couple tables. My eye was drawn to custom boxes, which brings me to my first attempt.

Thanks Gents! I’ve tried posting other photos but I am having a problem with them being either sideways or upside down! The tutorial sent to me was for Windows but I don’t use Microsoft products.

A very well constructed and artistic wood choices make an excellent small box.

I think it looks really exquisite in the sense that it looks very custom-made and personalised. It would be a perfect gift regardless of the occasion or it would look just as lovely sitting on the coffee table as an additional storage for those loose items like the remote and keys.

Have your say...
