You’re definitely onto something here, and have begun a wonderful series of bandsaw boxes. Great job disguising the kerf line on the circular side at the bottom left! At least, I think that’s where it is. What a perfect circle too!

Awesome design. I like the angle, and then the circle,
and the circle inside of it.

Way cool.

You have inspired me to start using plywood again. With a little imagination you can make stuff that people will love and not even know it’s plywood….... like this one! Very cool.
Looks like you have a few more friends than I do, as you got more votes on the WWGOA Xmas Gift Contest.
