Simple but a great looking box. Nicely done.

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.

This box is very simple and practical and will have many uses. Nicely done.

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.
