I agree with David. Another nice looking box. That is an interesting color for Walnut! I have never had any that Orange. I like the lid design, Is that like a pencil box?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

I am a BIG fan of the pegged miter. Looking good David. What are the dimensions? That side grains looks like it moves as you walk by it.

nice looking box. I like the overall simple and clean lines, and the way you made such good use of the grain. It draws you in but doesn’t wear you out with overdone detail or contrast.

not just another box, but, a very clean, awesome box. I really like the pinned miters, and the sliding lid is very nice

Thanks for sharing. First time I’ve seen the groove feature used to “raise” a lid. Like it!
