Here are some crown boxes I made at a John Wilson workshop. They are cherry bands with a maple rim. The rim is held on with brass pins. The name crown boxes came from Scott Phillips when he and John were having lunch at least that story.

Those are really awesome! Is that steam bent planks or cut out bandsaw-box style?

Love the variations on sizes, too. Great work

They are put in a hot water bath like the shaker oval boxes. Steam bending will work just as well as the hot water bath.

Really pretty!! Are the pins like rivets. Where do you get them?
