I have moved to making small boxes for a project. The smaller of the two boxes is made from maple for the box, Walnut for the lid. The other box is walnut and ash. I do not make a lot of boxes but enjoy working on them when I do. Thanks for looking.

These are beauties!!
I really like the shape of the lid on the square one and the way you lined the inside of the larger one.

Classy looking boxes! Simple design but have great wood combinations and clean lines. Great job!

I too like the one on the right. I have been asked to make a wine box for a wedding. Apparently the new thing is to put a bottle of wine in a box at your wedding along with a letter that each writes to the other. Then at 5th anniversary open box, drink wine and read letters. I suggested that something with contrasting woods might look nice for that. I’ve been looking at boxes on here and I think that would adapt well to make a wine box.
