    A few boxes I made recently

    I've been making a few small boxes as first projects after a long break from woodworking. Here's a few pics. Not perfect, getting the finish right (two have waterlox original, and two are water based lacquer) seems to be the hardest part.

    Welcome, Dueane. They are nice. I suggest varying the leg tops a little instead of making them all flat on the top. The
    thin wood gives a nice lean moderness.

    Welcome to the Creek!
    The boxes look great! How did you attach the legs - glue, pins, etc?

    Nice. The contrasting woods are eye-popping.
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    You have a nice theme going there, Dueane. What do you do with these boxes ? Do you sell them ?

    Nice work Dueane. I'm a big fan of applied legs like you did - just like the way they look and they add dimension to the box. You pulled it off nicely.
    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

    I used epoxy to glue the legs

    I try to sell them. No one buys fancy stuff around where I live!
    Where did I put those band aids?

    Dueane, nice work - thanks for sharing!

    What is the top panel of the box in the second pic made of? Some sort of burl? It looks to have a really neat texture

    Beautiful work! eBay might be a way to sell them if you don’t mind packing and shipping.

    “Getting back into woodworking” I see you didn’t forget anything. Nicely done.
