. . . here is the Valentine . . .it was a joy to do.  Thank you both so much!   (August 2016)

Wish you lived around the corner.  Thanks for all of your time and attention.  (August 2016)

My box came today. It will be perfect for my 12 inch Sanibel entry. Thank you. (August 2016)

The box is lovely and perfectly crafted! . . .the 1/2 inch depth is proportionate to the size of the box.  I plan to use very small shells as I suspect others would when using this size box so I think it’s a perfect depth.  And there’s still room for a flower with a higher rise in the center.   (Note:  The box was a 4" front loading box.  Original request for working depth was 1".  After further discussion, the inside working depth was reduced to 1/2" to make the depth more proportional to the width.  -Jim)  (August 2016)

. . .your boxes are perfect . . . (July 2016)

NOTE:  We were impacted the month of June and early July by the worst local flooding since 1957.  Our home was "high and dry"; but, Jim was unable to do any woodworking due to floodwater in his shop buildings.  It was a temporary disruption.  We are 100% back in business!  We appreciate the loyal patience of all our customers during this period.  

The boxes arrived today, Yippee! The 20” one is just what I wanted - Thank you, a beautiful job. (June 2016)

Thank you, Jim....they are beautiful! (May 2016)

Looks wonderful and I love the idea of the center hole!  (May 2016)

Boxes are great and many thanks!!  (May 2016)
