We have this Box thing going on, but not much going on.

Moment.

I have my box ready to go. I would like to see this thing get off the launch pad.
Send me your ideas to get this going and I will try to get things moving.

Let me know.

What kind of box are we making ?

Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

Thanks , I will get started .

First I need to check and see what they were doing
with those Minnekastchen boxes about five to six hundred
years ago in Germany for inspiration ( not really ) .

Very cool. I’m not sure I can reach that level of fancy.

Me neither. I do not have enough years left to do that..

I ran across these in the Kunst Museum in Cologne
Germany , on the net years ago. I have a theory that all those
locks were for stopping things from falling out of the
box , in the rough and tumble Dark Ages , and child-proofing
perhaps…….hummmmm . These are the kind of boxes, I agree,
that we should not aspire to ! Nice to look at though . The
seated couple on one of the boxes appear to be playing a
board game , which has 7 rows by 6 rows…..odd.

That’s my favorite one. I guess when you’re hand making everything, you don’t need much in the way of measuring equipment or even the ability to count.
