These are two little boxes made as gifts for friends. All the wood (maple and walnut) came from the scrap bin.

Excellent work. More proof that the “Scrap Bin” should be renamed the “Small Project Materials Bin”.....

Very nice indeed. As a relatively newcomer to small box making myself, I appreciate the fine job you have done on these twins. Keep up the good work!

Excellent use of scrap. Could you give us an idea of size please.

To BritBoxmaker: The boxes are 5” square and about 2-1/2” tall without the lids. There’s a little variation, just because the wood from the “small projects bin” was not uniform in size.

Nice boxes. I too like the using of scraps. I’ve recently started working my way through my scraps, unfortunately most of it is pine.
