Some of my recent boxes including 2 Cajones that produce wonderful sounds, at least to me. The larger one is 12” high x 8 1/2” x 6 1/2” and is made with Jatoba and about 1/8” thick walnut on one side and about 3/16” walnut on the other side. The smaller one is all walnut with about the same face thicknesses.

My talented wife did the glass mosaic on the maple box.

One of the pivot lid boxes is of Canary Wood, one is Black Limba, one is Birdseye Maple with heartwood lid, and one is Birdseye Maple with Golden Amboyna Burl lid.

The hinged boxes are maple with spalted maple panel, and Jatoba with Birdseye maple panel.

The lift top boxes are maple with spalted maple lid, maple and Tasmanian Myrtlewood.

That is a bunch of great boxes. You and your wife work well together. Everyone one is beautifully done with all those different woods.

You are missing one box, another box to hold all those boxes!

You really have been busy!
That, my friend, is quite a variety of beautiful boxes.
What are you going to do with all those boxes?

I agree, you’ve been busy and you need a box for the boxes 8^)
Each one qualifies as a project on its own, no “mass production” in that batch.
