A Mother’s Day gift for the lovely Wife. She is a stained glass artist and was using a cardboard box for her tools. I thought this would be more appropriate. Walnut with red oak trim.

That is very nice. The wedges on the dowel are a nice touch. Did you already give it to her, or are you saving it?

Thanks guys. I usually ask her what she wants and then make it, so she knows.
