Real nice for your first. The dovetails are real tight especially for being that the sides are at a angle. I’m thinking we will see more boxes in the near future. Keep up the good work.

That’s a good box. The joints are neat and the angles add interest to make you look.

The background I used for these photos was nothing more than an old brown blanket. I think a darker background makes the details of the work stand out better. I give most of the credit for my photos to my girlfriends camera. That thing is AWESOME!
