Very nice! I just saw those on the Woodsmith Shop the other day and was into them. You really made some great pieces here.

Great looking boxes Andrew. It’s pretty rare for Woodsmith to have errors in their plans their usually spot on.

Great job, I just re-watched that episode agian thinking I need to make one. I have about 25 episodes on my DVR and watch them when Blondie is not ready to sit down and watch our weekly shows. You change anything up from the plans? What were the errors?

My wife has seen about 5 minutes of Woodsmith Shop and just laughed. Don Peschke can’t say one sentence without giggling. Sometimes when I’m going to the garage I’ll mimic that for her “Well honey, <giggle> I’m going to go down and <giggle> make a fence for my <giggle> miter gauge.

Beautiful set of boxes!
How did you connect the ends to the body?

Beautiful boxes. I saw the episode and would like to make them too. I’d like to know more about the errors as well.

These are so fun to do. Never thought a Woodsmithshop project would be so popular. Made one for a friend that gave me some tiger maple and cherry just as a thank you.

The pattern for the top is 1/4” short as shown as in the picture. A little less on the ends about 1/8”. The finish on two front ones is a mix ofTransTint dye 1 qt. water, 6 tsp. Orange,and 4 tsp. Reddish Brown. I did two coats. The back is tung oil. All have high gloss lacquer as the top coat.

The ends are dowel on. the sides are 1/4” deep. Into the main body they are 5/16” deep.
