The no-glue kerf box had a major flaw in it….....when you picked it up by the sides…the bottom fell off! I fabbed some tiny doweled blocks w/leather string handles and solved the problem. It actually makes the box look a whole lot better in my opinion. The little blocks are only 1/2” square and drilling a dowel hole and a hole all the way through was quite the challenge. LOL It worked out great though. Thanks for the looks and comments.

That is a cool box, maybe a drop of glue is order, but the strings look great also.

Hi Jay
How about a another pin in the lid to capture the two loops that way you don’t have to tie a knot .

That is a nice bit of inventive lateral thinking.
