Beautiful first box! I love the dovetails and the cherry/maple combo!

That is much nicer than my first box. Mine was made out of cardboard…....

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.

Blackie-

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!
