  1. Yes! Some very nice, well made boxes Adrian and I like the cutting gauge you use if you don’t mind me asking where could I buy one preferably from someone who would post to Poland.

  2. Just getting into woodworking. Fantastic video and box. I love your setup for the plane. Very clever. Thanks for sharing.

  3. frumos…mi-a placut…n-am nici cea mai vaga idee de unde ai facut rost de lemnul de esenta tare….

  4. You are incredibly talented, and I appreciate you showing HOW you made these. However, I believe that you made it look about 20 times easier than it actually is (the mark of a real craftsman).

    Thank you!
