Those dovetails look great. That’s a nice little box.

I love projects like this. They may be small but are very well constructed, will last a hundred years and serve their purpose beautifully. In my family this is the kind of thing that would be handed down through the generations.

well done – those are some great dovetails. I like the contrast you get from the end grain. High five!

Thanks for the nice comments. This was a fun project and a great way to practice my dovetails. Birch is an underrated wood in my opinion.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks. This project looks like a great exercise in utilitarian and useful application of wood working skills. It is well thought out and practical. The very simplicity adds beauty to the finished product. Nice work. Might be time soon to work on your home page. It took me a while to get to that too. I like seeing the wide handle slots as sliding your hands around in these slots helps balance the box as you pick it up and move it. Nice project nice exhibition of skills. Keep boxing and keep posting.
