Some boxes for birthday presents. My first try at box joints without a bandsaw :P Both are 5.5” x 9” x 5.5”. Knobs came from Lowes with some doctoring. Finishes are Minwax Dark Walnut (l.) and Ebony (r.).

Cool work! Love to see leather incorporated into projects, I especially like the one with the wooden knob.

Like the rustic look, got some heirloom quality. Love the leather hinges. Well done!

Nice work. I haven’t made a box with leather hinges yet.
