cool box. To say the least it is a very unique and imaginative box. I really like how you hinged the lid. Great work.

Thanks for all the kind words. I woke him up and dusted him off for an encore performance on LumberJocks. He first appeared in the August 2001 issue of Popular Woodworking. Plans for the box are in the article, and I’m sure the good folks at PopWood will be more than happy to send you a PDF.

John, that is an outstanding box, especially for a candy dish. Excellent work with the router. A lot more work than meets the eye. As Lee said, great box turtle. Welcome to LJ’s

I’m not in the business of selling plans, but maybe if enough people ask, Popular Woodworking might offer them as a free download on their website. Try the old “In the spirit of Christmas” approach. :)
