Here are some pictures I found of boxes I made about four years ago. A lot of experimenting! What do you guys think?

Nice looking boxes. Have you had any issues with the cross grain glue ups of the lids to the cases?

Love the first one, and the hardware on it. The hardware on the last one makes it look very sturdy.

Excellent boxes. I really like the checkerboard style you used on the tops. Looks like alot of effort and time went into them.
