Made as a present for Mum, it is my second pine project and took about a week to complete.

I like the slight oriental theme created by the slanted legs and the stiletto feet.

Feedback would be appreciated thanks!

Good job. The pine looks kinda cool. An often overlooked wood.

Those feet look like they were hard to cut.

If you really want some feedback, mine would be stay with one theme. You have circles on the top and pyramids for the feet. Maybe better to make pyramids for handles/knobs on the top rather than holes.

I do like it though,

Welcome to LJ’s. Nice box!!!
I agree that diamond or triangular lid holes might improve the look/theme a tad.
All in all well done. If you make another one please post.
Thats a nice gift. Favorited to maybe give one a try sometime.
Thanks for sharing.

Have your say...
