Very nice! Love the way the top slides and lines up with the mitered corners.

Nice design! I like the sliding top and feet in the same wood as the lines and handle. Are they made of Walnut?

Yes Will they are walnut. The contrast with basswood is perfect.

You should have kept this in your shop for when needed. Wait for her to come out and say, why are you spending all your time in this shop, then pass it to her and say, cause I was making this for you. Puppy dog eyes when you hand it to her. :)

a beauty of a box, clean lines. I like it.

Nice, I also like the contrasting wood and the feet. Good gift idea for my ‘girly-girl’ friends that don’t understand why I am in the shop all the time instead of shopping or the spa with them…lol

I really like the box, nice miters and it’s neat how it closes. (WVU grad 1982)

No greater love could a LJ have than to build his wife a box for her nail polish!! Great job – keep doing things like that for her and she should be happy for a long time to come!!!

Hellough says that’s a lot of nail polish :) MY wife has more bottles than that, just in RED. Who ever new that there were that many different shades of red?
