Very nice! Did you have a profile bit for the sides and another for the feet?

I like your designs. The bride maids will certainly be happy to get those! What a great idea.

These boxes look just great. As for constructive criticism, no project on earth exists that couldn’t be even better, but we tend to dwell on the positive as there is usually none more critical than the maker! And besides, how do we define better? Welcome to LJ.
