I can’t express enough how much I like the look of Sapele & Curly Maple. I only wish the Maple had more figure to it. I decided to switch up the tails & the pins on this one. They both were fun to make but I’d have to admit I enjoyed using the router on the one a lil more.

You used a router for all the joints?

Very nice set! I really like the lid on number two.

Very nice set, it is very hard to build just one. Great work.

The lid & the bottom are the only pieces I used the router on.

Nice choice of woods. Together they make a fine contrast. Nice work
