I really like the design John, and choice of woods also. Good Job! I’m working on one similar to that using hickory.

Very nice work and a fine choice of woods.Is a make up box for getting you out of the dog house or for keeping her make up in?

My gosh. If I had to build a box for everytime I needed out of the dog house, I’d do nothing but build boxes.
Now, I just build stuff for my dog-house.
Oh, NICE BOX!

Oh, BTW, I have some pecan I was trying to think of a project for. The pairing with maple is exquisite. Thanks for the idea.

trust me, if i were having to “make up” this little box does not nearly sparkle enough for her.

Oops, does that mean that’s why I have so many requests for boxes? Now it’s all coming together.

Very nice box indeed. Unfortunately my wife would need a steamer trunk for all her make up and a screen to hide behind in the morning. Last year I got her an airbrush unit, but this year she’s trading it up to and Earlex 5000.

Lol….thanks Roger for the chuckle. I was going to mention that for some ladies…(and some guys perhaps) that the box needs to be big enough to carry spakle knives and trowels….if you have ever seen one of those WalMart pictorials with the kind of shopper’s they get…. then you know what I mean.
Seriously, though..Welcome to LJs John….and that is an excellent job on the box. Would love to see the inside….and what did you finish it with? We always like to see/read the details on a project….it gives some inspiration and some ideas for our own projects.

That’s a very nice box and I’m sure that your wife must have been pleased with it.

^that’s how I read it as well but was too embarrassed to ask :) It’s a fine box, whether for true make up or doghouse freedom purposes.

Ok, your title made me laugh, thinking of an old, old joke, where the punchline is “good trade”.
That aside, nice project! I’m in the camp of quite of few previous posters…..that’s just not enough box to handle all the make up around here, though the lines get blurred when you’ve got twenty and twenty-two year old daughters too!
