First one with the heart is my favorite, then the one with the coins. Love the details and the way you coordinated the colors of wood. Thanks for posting and have a great 2018.

Very nice; is the mermaid an inlay or drawn on?

Al, welcome to Lumber Jocks. You have a very artistic approach to woodworking and a great eye. I like your designs and your willingness to try different ideas and techniques. You are more fond of hardware than I am, but everyone is entitled to his or her own taste…especially in making boxes.

I really appreciate that your boxes are designed to do some specific task or to organize something. Nice work there. Congratulations on getting a “Top Three” on your first posting. Nice achievement. Thanks for sharing your work with us. These are lovely presents for your family, and I am sure they are works of love. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Greta boxes! I like those various metal additions. I bet whoever received them was too happy and sattisfied.
