Great job for a first try. The joints look tight and clean. Boxes are harder then they appear….especially getting the joints to fit without voids or tear out. Welcome to LJ’s – a great site for getting tips and getting inspiration.

Hi Max,

Very nice box. Keep up the good work! I look at it if you don’t learn something you can do better from every project then you aren’t improving! I wish you many more happy box making experiences!

Nice work and Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Good one! I’m sure the wife will be thrilled when you make hers.
