I like what you do with these boxes. The strapping and the accent stones, multiple wood varieties, all make each one distinctively different, interesting, and real pretty. I don’t think I’d seen the story of the MLK cherry. Thanks for directing us to that. I live about a hundred miles north of Bartlett, know the area. Thanks for sharing.

Another Beauty, Dan!

It is wonderful to know the history behind the wood used to make our projects.

It’s a very unusual design. Nice work.
