Nice boxes. For the first one, did you roundover the corners with a router bit? And how did you do that detail up on the top, the part that looks like it’s indented for a finger pull or …???

The top and bottom (slightly oversized) were glued to the body and then sanded to final dimension on the belt sander.
For some stupid reason, when I had the 2 sides and the top & bottom together glued up, I rounded over all the edges on the router table. Needless to say, it just didn’t look right when the top and bottom were put on. Thought about adding a inlay strip of a different color wood but ended up just using a cove bit in the router table. Once getting past the original depth of the roundover radius, it cleaned up pretty well between the 2 contrasting woods. So, it’s a mistake that turned out to give me a way to open the box without adding a knob.

Nice boxes, nice joints, rounding the corners looks great, cove detail on the 1st box – very successful solution.Good work.

Thanks for the explanation. I’m doing a series of boxes now and will probably steal at least part of your accidental design – I like the rounded corners.
