Project Information

Small boxes with pull off lids. These are a "save" from a run of boxes that were intended to have hinges and magnets. Unfortunatly, I took the stock thickness too thin to accept the magnets and hinge screws and it generally turned into a mess after I ruined three trying to will it to work.

So, I put them aside for about 8 months. Then decided to add a liner taller than I usually do, and voila, a really satisfying sliding action to open and close these now. They are tiny little boxes and I have 6 more to "save" from the original run…I'll get to those later!

Padouk and "I can't recall"
Mahogany and Purpleheart

Thanks!

Nicely done. Glad you were able to "re-design" as they look great.
