    1 little box & 2 jewelry boxes

    The basis for these boxes came from David Freedman's book "Box-Making Basics.
    This one is of Aromatic Red Cedar, the legs are Birdseye Maple.Attachment 7899

    Attachment 7900
    This one is of Cherry with a Curly Maple rased panel lid.

    And the last one is of Wormy Butternut with a Cherry raised panel lid.[ATTACH]Attachment 7904[/ATTACH]
    Somehow the sequence is mixed up, but I'm sure you will get it right.

    Aside to Frank Pellow: Done using your instructions to the best of my ability. Not very good though, is it? Must be doing something incorrectly.
    The jewelry boxes are for 2 grandaughters, the red cedar will keep my loose change.

    Thanks for that Frank! I'd trade my ability to make boxes for that Festool saw you have for sale!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Exquisite boxes Mack, I hope I will be able to do such beautiful work some day.

    I'm sure they will become family heirlooms.

    Mack, anyone can have tools; but few have your woodworking skills.

    And, by the way, I have now sold the Festool circular saw that you are referring to.
    Cheers, Frank

    That's me banging my head, because there isn't one showing me kicking my behind! I just hemmed & hawed to myself too long. Mack; you are a loser.
