I made this simple box just to try out a cover design. The box is approximately 1 3/4” in diameter and 1 3/4” tall. The crystal is a green Swarovski crystal.
I’m not sure why the second image rotated when I posted the image. Anyone have a suggestion on how to fix the rotation.

Love the top! How did you cut those grooves in top?

I designed the cover using Aspire software and cut the top on my CNC machine.

Here’s a rotated version, Roger. I just rotated it correctly, and then cropped a pixel or two off the bottom. Good as new.

Thats a cutie. I am sure the ladies will like this type of box. The Svarovski is a great accent.

That’s a cool lid, both the crystal and the carving.

I assume that you took the picture with your phone. The easiest way to remedy the rotated images is to view the picture on your phone or tablet, tap the edit button and make any minor edit to it. I usually do what Dave did and do a minimal crop before saving it. That has always worked for me.
