I have 2 jewerly boxes I’m making but have been on hold while I recoup from Knee surgery. Almost there. Look fwd to making some sawdust. How did you fasten the hanld to the top? We might be coming back to Mich in Feb. My buddy who lives on the Chain Lakes got certified for commercial fireworks. The plan a show off the ice every year so just maybe, LOL
