Got my gifts ready! I liked my Asian Box so much i decided others should have one.

These all have salvaged Pine in them, along with either Walnut or Mahogany. I got to use up a lot of short drops and i have to say they were a sheer pleasure to build! All are finished natural with a clear semigloss lacquer.

Wow. You do sweet work. Can I be one of the others? They do look fun.

Dammit, Miles! One of these would have been amazing, but a whole bevy??? I love ‘em!

How did you shape the center part of the tops? I’m assuming you set up a jig of some sort?

Really great work, Miles. The only trouble now will be the fights,” No, I like yours better, trade me, please!!!”

wow…. beautiful boxes (and design) and a beautiful picture! I really like how you included nature in the image. It is the perfect setting and adds to the beauty and charm.

Those are great. I would have never tried walnut and pine, but it looks great.

I think that is the proper collective term for boxes – if it isn’t it should be! The whole one shown in the first picture is my favorite, the one behind it is my favorite too.

Very, very nice Miles. I love how they are very ‘fluid’ looking even though they are boxes. Great aesthetic appeal.
