Wow! Love the contrasting woods, joinery and finish, just really nice in every detail.
An inside shot or two would be interesting as well.
thanks for showing these,

Great job on these. Like the sleekness of the lines on the first box and LOVE the white wood (poplar?) on the second box. Nice woodworking on these.

Keep going, boxes are addictive. You are destined to be a great box maker by this achievement.
Well done!

Very nice. How did you cut the joinery (I like it)?
