My old storage boxes, 4 of em stackable
My new storage box, currently only 1 but soon to be 2. (also stackable)
My mentor, who first got me interested in Lasers, gave me this file 2 years ago. and until today never made the larger one. Wicked kewl design no glue needed holds itself together with pins from each of the 4 sides and bottom.
Nice! I need to figure out something to do with storage of stuff.

This is great. I think we can all use more storage. In my case a garage is not big enough.

I’m not sure what scares me more, The fact that my mentor knew I’d need this, or that there are still yet 2 larger sizes. (also which I haven’t YET made.)
That is a neat design. I need to explore pins more. Sometimes the finger joints feel rather ordinary.

I love that connection method. My regards to your mentor!
How do they hold up to twisting/racking?

They can be taken apart, but it takes a bit, the 4 smaller ones are 2 years old now and never had an issue with them. Including getting knocked over by the kittens.
The possibilities to style that box is ENDLESS. Paint, stain, decoupage, etc.
As strange as this may sound
@JimmyWayneWestie, you are the one who would create a gargoyle to drain water. I’d just cut the pipe flush and let it go!

I like the gargoyle route
When I built my pizza oven I topped the roof with a cast resin dragon so the smoke from the chimney looked like it was coming out of its mouth.
Art is best when it elevates mundane tasks like draining water or channeling smoke
I am absolutely blown away!!! You know me VERY WELL!!!
Yes —- I would create a gargoyle. I ALWAYS try to take everything to the next level.
