once again MORE BOXES

the first was made for an anniversary present

who can guess what year ?

these are 5 1/2” W x 8” L x 4 3/4” T
they are all a bit larger that the first recent two post

#1 here

and #2 here

i would like to thank you all
for your kind comments to these builds
and due to the responses to them
am working in newer venues now

as usual my work takes me to unknown places
with different and challenging teachings

if i followed the same known ways
i might as well have them made for me in china
and just lay on the couch
and wait for wal-mart to carry the line

hope you enjoy these
and hopefully get some help
in your own work thru them

as always
be safe
and take care

thank you for looking

Hinges on Box #1… End treatment for using short lengths of rod for the hinge?

Nice Work David…
I count 9 (or 10) different woods in the heart, so I’m guessing 9… or 10…
but Wood is the Traditional Gift for the 5th…???
