The first box was inspired by t-chisels dipling blog. This was a pain in the butt. Unfortantely the imperfections are every where on the top. Next time i’ll do a better job. I guess i’ll just chaulk this up to being my 2nd box ever. The top is birch with mystery wood which i think is chinese elm. This Box is being made for my Bro-in-law who is getting married and this was their logo. The other box was my very first attempt at making a box (Maple and poplar.) I think i improved a little but your comments and dislikes are much welcomes other wise I won’t get better.

They both look good. The small one has a great finish it to it and brings out that wood nicely.

It’s not made from pinnochio is it goppetto?
I think it’s a nice box, no pun intended. We all have to start somewhere right? You should see some of my early stuff, barely makes firewood.
Nice work all around.

I like the band of dark wood in the middle of the top, brazilian cherry?? Your carvings far better than what I can do, it looks sweet. The only things I dislike are the hinges not set in the wood like the first box, probably due to thickness.

I really like your carving job, I too am getting into that, but I am not as good as you seem to be. Thanks for sharing.

I think your boxs and the carving work look great. I’m never satisfied with what I make and I suspect that there are many others out there who are also afflicted with the same feelings about their own projects. I think this dissatisfaction motivates us to keep moving forward and improving our skills.
