What I would give to be able to pick through that little bitty mind of yours. lol You sure do come up with some beautiful wood combinations and designs. I’ll do second best and pick around in your projects for ideas.
I have to agree with the Grizz man, Smack dab gorgeous. Yeah, that just about sums it up. You sure make some nice boxes.

Yep, the Grizzman hit it on the head and has in fact minted a new standard superlative for LJ projects:

Smack Dab Gorgeous!

Yes Sir! that wooden thingamegij (in this case all those boxes made by majeagle1) is Smack Dab Gorgeous!

Keep up the good work!

Be Careful!

Another piece of eye candy. Love the boxes…and the wood choices….you have a knack for choosing the right combinations. The inlays are top notch and I am a big fan of splined mitres….I really need to make a new jig for making the spline cuts – my old one was MDF and got wet during one of the heavy storms we had this year. (Nothing like the ones in the heartland and Mississippi River…thankfully)...but water and MDF definitely do not mix for sure.

Another stunning work of art. I just favorited your Etsy shop. Keep up the great work.
