That’s a beauty, Dan.

I wonder what this would look like with one of your tiles in place of the Bird’s Eye Maple?

I can see some fancy work on this. Great job on mixing the woods. Beautiful box. Reminds me of a picnic basket.

. This pair of boxes are destined to my daughters aged 36 n 34. I’m thinking felt bottom’s in their favorite colors and am working on artwork to fit inside the lid.
