In September, 2019, I learned that an 18" double Cherry SV Box was being offered on eBay with the claim that I made the box. It didn't look like one of my boxes; so, I investigated. After getting the name of the seller, I was able to check my records and verify that I did make an 18" double cherry box for this seller; but, the box they were offering on eBay was not the box I had made for them. The box they were claiming was made by me utilized cheap plywood for the back panels and cheap stamped metal hinges. I have never oriented the grain of the back panels in the horizonal direction like was done with the box this seller listed on eBay. I didn't see any type of mortise lock or latch hook. I cannot know for certain; but, I doubt the box being offered had mortise and tenon joints for superior strength.
Why am I posting this page on our website? For the simple reason that the seller on eBay got nasty with me when I presented the truth and asked her to remove my name from her listing.
Below are pictures of the box I made for this eBay seller 7 years ago:
