    Howdy Sir,

    Great job on the boxes and the posts. One quick comment about the glue up. From here it looks like you glued the end grains on the finger joints. I usually put the glue on the edge...

    Yeah John, thanks for that theory. I am using IE8 though so, eh, it still was a lot of trouble which is why they added the links after my post. Thanks for dropping by though.

    That was a lot of work to open enough windows in IE to see all the Novice entries and then vote. This would have been a lot easier if the Novice entries could have been posted here also.

    Hi jow104,

    Love all your work. Just a quick question about the tissue box top. Do you expect any wood movement problems when you attach it using the brass brackets?

    Best,

    Hi again Paul. Now that I see better what we're talking about, I have to agree with the finger joint suggestion. It would be rather simple even for a hand tool only joint. I would make the fingers...

    Well done. There's more to this than meets the eye. Can you perhaps describe in words what we see in the pictures so we don't have to wait for the box to come back?
