Christian, nice straight forward project. You might consider splines on your next box. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Cool box! Very nicely done. I usually make boxes when I have nice scraps, especially when I get done with a time consuming project.

I have been told there is no such thing as a Simple Box , because they can be some of the most difficult things to make right.
And I would say you got this one Right.

It looks good and well crafted. Like the simple design and the finish brings out the beauty of the woods used.

Have your say...
