Greeting everyone. This is my first time of posting a project. This is a box that my daughter requested to place all her small bottles of essential oils in to keep them organized. I needed to make up something in a hurry as she was visiting for just a few days and this is what I came up with. I had some old molding laying around for the basic box and added a drop on lid. She is very happy with it, and I liked the way it turned out for a quick project.

Welcome Jim. I really like your box, great job of design and construction. Your finish enhances the color of the oak and gives it a very smooth look. Your daughter should be very pleased. I’ll look forward to seeing more of your talent in the future. Thanks for inspiring

Jim, nice job on this box. I like the use of molding to give it character. Looks like it will do the job. It helps your readers if you include the dimensions of your projects. I am looking forward to your next posting. The first one is always the most difficult. There is a learning curve on that. Just by way of sharing information. I made some boxes for the same purpose. This was my take. Keep boxing and keep posting.
