Inspired is not really the truth. As everyone should know by now Steveinmarin gave us the pdf. So here is my versions of his box. They are both made from mahogany. The larger one I got over excited and missed cutting the back to make it like Steve did. So I did a design modification. The smaller one is more like Steve’s. I gave them both to my loving wife for her birthday. My cousin’s wife suggested that I market the small ones as a tooth fairy box to hold a child’s tooth. (never would have thought of that). Not sure of the sizes of the boxes yet. I will measure and post in the comments

Great Job Rick. I like the tooth fairy box idea. That might be a good seller. Have the kid put the tooth in and the next morning find money in it. Might save some parents headaches trying to get that darn tooth out from under the pillow.

How did you mess them up? It could be just a design modification

Nice job…they get addictive… BTW, I have not had a problem finishing the insides between the saw kerf and sanding, mine always seem to have more than enough slop to finish them.
