This is another gorgeous box. The figure on the top is outstanding. If you aren’t careful you can get hooked on these boxes.

Thanks for the post.

Very Nice Box, they look so easy until you start looking at the perfect joints, perfect finish and perfect size.

I like these little boxes. I’ve looked at several on the site. I haven’t made any nice boxes like these, and I’m wondering how you cut the lid joint. Is half of the offset cut before assembly, then the outer side cut lower down afterward?
