I am not one of the premier box makers here. But I still work on them occasionally. All boxes are 12”x8”x6”. They are some of my small items at the show. The lids are beetle kill pine

Thanks for looking

I like it too. Some good features on it, with the hinges, and live edge, etc.

I like it, Monte. It’s got it’s own look. Congratulations.

Good going !!!! The only wood I use is recycled, downed wood (old age or storm) and Sequoia wood that was cut in the late 40’s ,early 50’s and left as unuseable. My LT 40 woodmizer, a 48” alaskan mill and lots of work turn “scrap” into really nice stuff !!!

Keep up the good work and imagination.

I like the “Lincoln Log” look! Brought back some childhood memories.
And you know I approve of the “Patron” hinges!

Monte, I disagree, this is prime time for sure. How boring would projects be if they all looked factory made!
