Hello all and thanks for the warm welcome! I’m a beginning woodworker, and this is my first post. This box in my second attempt at box joints (uneven numbers just don’t look right). The box has many flaws, and I learned alot.
The wood is poplar, with a mahogany lid, and a walnut pull. It is finished w/linseed oil and wax. Thanks for looking.

That is an excellent first to announce your membership. If you did a “box” search on LJs, you would find that your box’s results, are in the top of the running. Great job, and welcome.

This is a great beginning to box making. I can’t wait to see what you turn out with a little more practice.

Looks good Nikki.

I am a symmetrical guy, that´s why I do prefer uneven joints,. there is always one in the middle.
