I like this.
Tricky to veneer right to the corners. You did well.

With veneer on the outside, did you have to put any on the inside? Nice work by the way. I have just bought some nice veneer and looking forward to messing it up!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Very nice, as shipwright said it is real hard to make corners look good, great looking box.

Spectacular. This is not just ‘another box.

Thanks for the comments guys,Robert-now that you brought it up maybe I should have veneered the inside also.Didn’t think of that.I guess I’ll see what happens over time.
