This is some shelf boxes I made before the heart thing
I made them from some left over from the house and I built twenty of them
Later I will make some for my office
The handle on the bottom works real well.
They are 10×14 and 7 in deep
Thing I used for the glue up
I get the syringes from a dental supplier
$20 for fifty

The boxes look nice. I love the handle idea. I hope you don’t mind if I steal the idea. I also like the idea for using dental syringes for glue.

Nice boxes, I will have to make some to replace the cardboard parts boxes that I am using, but will have
to make them smaller, or I will never find the items hiding in the bottom of them. I am not disorganized,
I just have not figured out my filing system yet. Thank you for sharing.
