I’ve been following your posts with interest. The idea of “simple and clean” is one I find very attractive, yet the simple box that is also “beautiful” is not so easy to achieve as one would think. A fancy lid is not sufficient (though there’s nothing wrong with it). Most of my posts have been somewhat more complex, but I am experimenting at the moment with the simple, but beautiful box. Who knows, I might even get something tolerable. I like your work. Keep making boxes.Roger

Simple and clean you may say – but so beautiful. There’s a lot to be said about making something so eye catching without overdoing it.

This little jewel is definitely an outstanding example that a project does not have to go overboard with complexity to be impressive. I agree with Jordan … “There’s a lot to be said about making something so eye catching without overdoing it”...
Well done and welcome to Lumber Jocks….

So … now you have to tell us the photo tip ! Is it something like a soft-focus filter, or … is that just my glasses getting dirty ;-)
But … simple and clean … raises the stakes. I mean … when it’s not all cluttered up with doo-dads, nooks, crannies, blended species, and stuck on what-nots … the craftsmanship and design are REALLY in the spotlight.
And yours is first-rate.
Beautiful piece. Thanks for sharing !

I really like the clean lines, and those hinges, that’s thinking outside the box. Keep practising with the pics, they are getting better.

Simply stunning. A great reminder that things don’t have to be forced to be grand.
