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.

Gorgeous boxes, Dan.
I love the tiles and frames,too.
Where can a guy from the sticks get some tiles like those?
