    Those are great.
    I can see my wife using them for sea salt & cracked pepper next to the stove.

    Alfredo! Hola! Long time no see.

    Very nice job on the boxes. Glad to see you're still turning.

    Alfredo, those are very nice!! Will be showing them to my advanced class as that will be one of their assignments this semester. Do you mind sharing a little more information on how you turn the base and lid? I generally show the pictures and then the explanation and then they can determine their own plan of attack for their assignment.

    Those are fantastic, I love how the detailing hides the join so well.

    Bueno. Las cajas son bastante . Now that I have exhausted my Spanish with the exception of ordering food and drink . . . Those look great. I can definitely see them as salt and pepper "boxes" in the kitchen. They would make great ring boxes for a young miss as well.

    I really want to try a couple of those but I have no clue how to make a lid that fits like that. I don't know what you would call it. A tenon, collar, lip ?????????
