    Nice work Gayl, I'm sure the boxes will be well received

    I also agree with Bartee, more details on your finger joint jig would be great!

    Cheers!

    Very nice work Gayl, love the box joints. Would like to set some more detail of the gage box. Also would like to see some pics of the box joint jig. Looks like you have some kind of adjustment on it?

    Thanks,
    Darren

    Nice! Did you turn the pieces yourself?

    OK, a box for a, if you will pardon me, 'gauge'.
