This is my second project. It’s a little box made of maple and walnut. It was a lot more challenging than a box would seem. Lots of little mistakes, but in the end I like it.

You did a good job on this box. It is amazing how much can be learned by making boxes, without risking too much material.

Very nice box…looks great. I don’t see any mistakes or faults. I only ever see the things I have done wrong or messed up. That is because I made them and know they are there and to me they really stand out. Because you made a fault or did something wrong you know where it is and it stands out to you….We only see a beautiful box. Well done

Great job on this pretty box … Mistakes? remember, Thomas Edison once said Failure? Oh no, I now know of thousands of things that won’t work. (or something like that). You have learned on this project and the next will go smoother … Can’t wait to see your nest one.

There’s a reason why my work is not machine-perfect: it’s handmade. If anyone doesn’t like that, I totally understand why they need to go pay retail to get machine made items!
