This box has been sitting for quite awhile, but finally it got there.
After a bit of a mishap – I dropped the lid and it snapped! thankfully it was a clean break and was easily put back together. That is the main reason that the lid has now got a backing on it. Its probably better this way anyway!

I have been bitten, once again, by the box making bug so there are another couple in progress.

-- Theresa,

Very nice TJ!

Nice joints and great proportions.

I would have used a darker wood as the backer to really show off that fantastic scrollwork of yours though! :-)

Thanks guys, it means alot to be welcomed back from all of you.
And YES it is sooooooooooo nice being back in the shed working!
As to the backing wood I really thought it was going to be a bit darker than it actually turned out to be, never mind you live and learn.

-- Theresa,

The box is lovely. We really like the scrolled pattern. Did you design it yourself?

Thanks for sharing.
