I have finished two more Spice boxes, one is for our friends who celebrated their 50th anniversary, thanks to Paul Mill for the inlay, the second is for family in Holland whom we are going to visit. The Walnut one is made from a headboard that I had and re-purposed for this project, the second is made from recycled bard timbers. The drawer front are veneered lacewood.

I know from experience that many skills are used to pull a spice box off. Yours is beautiful. The lacewood is an especially nice surprise. Congradulations.
