Graduation gift

This 10×7x4 inch curly maple and cherry box was built upon request for a graduate. The heart is power carved, and the lift is made from rosewood. It’s always a pleasure building something knowing where it’s going ahead of time. Finished with wipe on poly, waxed and buffed.

Very awesome box. The wood combination works well together and the sculpting adds class. It is a gift that will be really appreciated.
