Talking Stationery Box for Dad

I made this Stationery box for my dad for Christmas. I made it out of BBP 1/4" thick. I made the hinges from 3/8" thick BBP. Finished with Golden Oak Minwax stain. I got the pattern out of Compound-Cut Wooden Hardware, and in it is 3 box patterns designed by John A. Nelson.

Thanks for lookin'

-Bill

Beautiful Beautiful! You cut the hinges too, didn't you? That is such a fine touch - love the whole thing!

Very nice box build Bill. I'm sure Dad will be happy his "Son" built it just for him...you know we will always be little kids in our parents eyes.

Thanks for the comments. I've been out of town to visit my dad in Texas and gave him his box. He did like it very much.
