Really nice box – I bet Dad is proud of it. I like the false bottom – nice touch.

Really nice box, I like the false bottom and the picture frame, that’s given me an idea to incorporate a picture frame into a jewellery box i am in the process of making. Whims are good!

Great Box. A couple of great ideas.

Way to think outside the Box.

What’s really nice about members of this community, is the number of projects that are made as gifts. And I also do like your two ‘whims’. A lovely ‘honest’ box H B.
