‘been a rough year, and after all kinds of stuff and a move, I have a new shop—better than ever—and finally pushed through the mental barrier to get going again. This was made primarily with a hand miter saw. It’s highly flawed, especially if I were to take a picture with it open :). but it’s difficult to express how hard it was to get to the point where I could finish it. I’d say i’m moving on to bigger and better things, but it’s going to be a few more small boxes, but better executed.

Great looking box. If you next ones are to be better executed, they will be beyond phenomenal. There is certainly nothing wrong with this one. Beautiful work.

It looks to be a well made box. If there are flaws as you say, you will get passed it. You have a great mind for design. keep up the good work.

We are always too close to our own projects. Others never see the stress and struggle. Keep challenging yourself.

Getting through the mental barrier and getting started is sometimes the hardest part of the project. Your box looks good from where I’m sitting.

Looks good from here! I am convinced that doing the same basic thing over and over will hone your skills and make you better.
