These are some boxes that I made for 2005 Christmas presents. I need to get better at taking pictures of my finished projects. I have been building and giving away projects for many years and just recently started signing and photographing them.

One is Canary wood (from a very nice board, have not found any that nice since), one is birds eye maple, and the last is cocobolo and figured maple.

Sorry about the inside pic I gave the boxes away. I’ll do a better job on the pictures in the future. I allways use the same hardwood for the bottom as the sides.

I like the Cocobolo and maple one best. I really like boxes with light and dark contrast.
They all look good though.

Don’t know how I missed these in the beginning but sure am glad I found them now!Very, very nice! Wonderful choice of woods and I love the classic design and the feet.
I will check out your other boxes as well.
Look forward to seeing more!
