Nce looking boxes. Do you glue up the “slices” and then saw them square?

And very nicely made too. I like the roundel. You also have more patience with hinges than I do.

At first glance I thought you were entering this in the birdhouse contest, you could entitle this “Jailhouse”. OOPS, I didn’t read carefully, I thought this was one of Martyn’s project! I will say you did a masterful job duplicating Martyn!

Ditto on rachet’s question… Wish you had more shots of the process. You have two great looking examples of your tallent, here.
Good job.

Sweet.
The thin side plates are a good technique too.

Good job,
Steve

Normally I make a lot of photo’s of the building-process. This time I just wanted to build some nice boxes.
