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

Nicely done Leith. These, along with your other posted pieces, indicate to me that you have box making fever and have had it for some time. I’m sorry to tell you that there is no cure. ;-)

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.
