Box that screams carry me!

Alright, so this is my third one! I promise I will stop counting >_< Its a bit more simple just a nice oak box. I tried to implement lap joints for the sides although they are not quite flush. I used dowels to hold the center divider in as well as holding the handle on to the box itself.

Like I said, nice and simple.

Criticism is more then welcome!

You are making great progress.

Don't worry about stopping counting... worry about forgetting how may you've made!

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Looks good, splinters!

Cool looking design! You may want to take a little more time on fitting, the rabbets on the ends look a trifle rough.

Yeah they could use a bit of touching up. It would be much easier with power tools but im trying to master it by hand.

These were my first set of rabet joints. I will get better though!! I have some very ambitious designs that might even go outside the realm of boxes!!!

Working with hand tools is something that takes years to master and you are well on your way. I think I like this one the most out of the ones that you have posted. I really like the rustic look of it. As for the joints, I wouldn't sweat the fact that they are not perfect. In this case, it is part of its charm. This box reminds me of an old shoe shine box from years ago. Great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I quite like that "rugged look" you got going there. The more you make, the better you get, so keep at it :)
