in one of my previous posts
dennis (grosen) commented about square boxes
so this is in answer to that
and from the response to the small wavy lines box i made

in picture 6 you will notice some round plugs the hinges are mounted to
they are to keep the hinge pins in line
against the curved surface there

all the comments i have received from these gift boxes
make me want to keep exploring different and new things

although some of the bodies of the boxes might be the same
i like to see what i can come up with to make them all unique

i have two works about to begin
and need to be ready for that soon
i was going to wait till i had more boxes ready
but not sure when that might be
so decided to post this now

dennis i hope this is ‘unsquare ’ enough for you LOL

thanks for looking once again
and have a good veterans day
and happy holidays

Very nice David

the wavy lines are awesome.

I thought it was like the pages of a book

Hey David. That looks great.
And it has a heart in it – awwww.

I like the hinges too.

I need to get back in the shop…

Very GOOD!

I like your NON-Square approach…

A possible title… “Have a Heart”

You sure do wonderful work!

Thank you.

My French curve won’t bend that far.
Great looking box David.
It seams you are pushing the limits of bending wood.
But your heart seams to be in it.
