I’m still working my way through the 20 or so book-matched box blanks I sliced up about a year ago. These are some of the newest results. The first is a style I saw on here a while back and wanted to try. No clue what it could ever be used for, but sometimes that’s not the point. I included a small maple spline on one corner to indicate the correct position of the top (it fits on at a 180-degree swing as well, but looks a bit off). The rest are assorted frame and panel / solid wood lift top. All comments/questions/criticisms welcome.

That first box is FINE as are the others. Nice job on these and you used some great wood combinations.

I like them all!. What are the size of these boxes? They do look to be near micro sized to me. Which I think makes the detail you have include even more impressive. Great projects.

Thanks everyone – the first box is the smallest at ~3” square. The rest are around 4” x 7”.
