They look great. The names are just as good as the boxes.

Greg, I though someone had warned you, those boxes are something like rabbits, hope you can cull the
herd at the next sale without moving up in the next tax bracket. Very nice looking boxes and thank you
for sharing.

You are one prolific box maker!

Do you put their names on them at the shows? People might think they adopting them if you do.

You have a very special talent, I would think these take way more patients that I would have to make these

Thanks everyone…I always sincerely appreciate that yall take the time to comment. It means a lot..Going to the shows will be a vacation from the workshop so I can take a breather. It is fun to name the boxes instead of just saying the wood type…just gotta start thinking of more good names to add to the description cards.
