Just one more box after this one and the Chrismas boxes will be done.

This one is cherry and tiger maple, the pictures don’t do the chery justice as it is beautiful.

Please let me know what you think, good or bad.

Thanks for looking.

wow you did a beautiful job and you are right the wood is super beautiful….my only change comment on this would be i think the front handle should have been wider…i think its possibly a little blocky..but besides that a wonderful job…grizzman

You know I have been looking at the handles and trying to figure out what needs to be changed. Your right they are a little blocky and need to be wider and more rounded.

I built my machine with plans from the website

Lots of information and fee plans and a great bunch of people.

You can see a picture of what I built by going to my home page here.

All of your boxes look great, CW. They are a great tribute to a very unique box making style.

Very nice box! The routed designs are unique to you. You should do a blog showing some more details. Keep up the nice work :-)
