I like it. The colors came out nice. I’m still learning dovetail joints. What are your thoughts on joints for boxes like this?

I use a dovetail jig made in Australia. Look up Gifkins dovetail Jig. it is almost too simple. I used to use a Leigh but its too complicated for this. Makes good joints though.

Nice clean box. I especially like the look under the ‘hood’. This box looks tight!

Great looking piece. Are the hinges SOSS? I’m don’t see that type in boxes very often.

Nice work, like the composition within the box, the alternating color scheme adds a lot of interest to the piece.
