That’s not just another box.. it’s a nice box. I like the pin stripes matching the corner splines, it’s a nice look. Don’t really care for the maple box inside, but I’m persnickety that way. I like everything else about it.

I really didn’t like the box inside either Ted. Just wanted to do something different. Won’t do it again

Great box and I liked Davids car analogy. What’s up with the minature pictures? I’ll bet it’s really fancy in larger format.

yea gary i forgot to mention that, your pictures come out even smaller when you go to enlarge them, you need to check for camera or what ever your using to take these pictures and change the settings so the pictures will be bigger..its really annoying when you go to see your great projects and the pictures are so small........small.........:)...grizz

Thanks for the remarks. I don’t know about the picture size. It works right when I look at it. ??? Maybe I need a tutor

Gary,

You can have just another day, or just another meal, or just another breath, but not just another box…especially when it is beautiful. It’s like saying the Piata is just another hunk of marble.
