Rick, I wish I could see better in the pictures how you made these. Looks like they fold open and closed. I was asked to make something like this and I like how you did it. Perhaps you will be able to show a side view or two.

Good work! You get a lot done up in that attic workshop.

Nice way to save some scrap. Actually, there is no scrap in woodworking

I need to stop checking in to LJ. It’s projects like this that keep my to-do list swollen!
Nicely done.
I too would like to know more about your process on these.

Nicely done Rick!

I’ll assume you modeled your design after the old, plastic cassette boxes?

Nice clean work. I’d like to make a set or seven. Congratulations on the top three of the day!
