I absolutely love this lumber. Great designs, too…those mitered-front drawers look great. What finish did you use?

Looks like a really nice job. Hope you sell out. We can declare this the year of the box :-)

Very nice Eddy. You’re really making me want to get out to my shop!

Can I ask roughly how much you charge for those? It’s okay if you don’t want to say…

Those are all really nice with perfect joinery, great choice of woods, and of course; I love the wooden hinges! They look like they were milled on a router table and then drilled for the hinge pins? I haven’t seen hinges exactly like those before.

no body comented on the fact there are no handles no the drawers?
that will be a post at a later time. the drawers are held in place with magnets and a metal plate to open them
you need to push a brass pin in to a hole in the rear to open the drawers
randy i get $150.00 all day long for these they sell well i think i have sold about 20 or so in this design
gfadvm yes i make them in a router table with my incra tsls system i can batch out 5 or 6 sets in a hour
they go quick
millo i use wipe on poly works everytime
thanks foor all the coments

Wow, great boxes. I’m amazed at the detail especially in the hinges.
