Very nice! The dovetails on both of your boxes look very good.

Thanks muesli. I have been practicing for months cutting them by hand, I had never cut a dovetail in my life not even with a jig. I watched Paul Sellers videos and several others, and then a month or so ago I took a class at Woodcraft. The boxes turned out to be Christmas gifts for my son, daughter and nephew. It is very satisfying and relaxing. But I will say that they look better in the pictures
