thnx again everyone.
Rick: I cut the box joints with Woodline’s Router Joint System. I bought the system last Oct while at the Woodworking Show in Covington, KY. I’ve only scratched the surface of this jig system. These were actually experimental boxes that surprised myself I guess. Hope to have many more projects from this system in the future

Good stuff Roger! Nice combination of woods and whole feel of these. I can also relate when it comes to feeling projects seem to take for ever. I guess it is more common than I thought…lol

BTW… I always remember… No matter how many times I read the book. The tortoise “Always” beats the hare… I try to remind myself that fact from time to time.

Keep up the good work!

You have given me hope Roger, I have been working (on & off) on a jewellery / keepsake chest for my wife for nearly 2 years everything gets in the way perhaps now I may actually get it finished & I hope it turns out 1/2 as good as yours
