Hi Kari

Both have a nice overall design.

I am not sure how the round one is constructed, or the material used, but looks like segmented solid wood on the lower part of the disk and thicker wedge (possibly Ash) on the top looks nice and stable.

The box shape is very nice, but I do not like the use of birch ply wood, or at least seeing it is ply wood. How about a thin (2mm) edge banding the same as the sides of the box, you also might like to consider veneering the inside of the box also , this will help to equalize the stresses and the grain will be in the same direction as the outside of the box – The top is not to my taste, looks cheap, again showing the use of commercial plywood , as do the shelf pins used to locate top of the box. consider using 18mm ply, rout a groove so you have a drop in lid, and edge-band or veneer the cut away ply wood.

I know this will increase the unit price, but I think that the difference in appearance will outweigh the cost and give a real sense of quality, not only to the “free items”, but also the products they are selling

Have you thought about branding/lasering/or a good quality sticker “hand made by Pupaja” and/or the companies information (wine & Freezer products Oy) – it is a nice touch and again shows quality of product.

I’m very intrigued by this artful design. I like it very much. Well done!

I wonder if there is anything that keeps the cheese plates stacked nicely. When I make coasters that stack I put a magnet on the underside of each coaster. They do a great job of keeping them stacked neatly.

Nice design & look. Even a limited production run sounds challenging to me.

Hi thankĀ“s for comments. I think the box is out I agree what Tony said because when I was making it I had to make many compromise when thinking amount of work…that magnet idea I was also thinking
