That is a very cool design. Did you come up with it yourself or did you get the pattern somewhere?

Very nice. I love the layered and grooved look of the lid. They’ll sell fast.

A very unique and creative design Thomas

Apart from the lids it looks like you were precise enough to make the base and dividers all knock downable.

You could then challenge Ikea for some of their market share. (A joke!)

I will be interested to hear how much they sold for at the fair.

I’ve not been on the web site very much. Thomas this is geometry and artistry together. Your finding visual balance , and complex pattern recognition. You’re finding your way! I’m envious. LOL! another WOW piece.
