I wish I had the patients that you have to create such a master piece! I am totally blown away that you made it from all pallet wood. What also impressed me was you liner job on the drawers, they look so crisp and clean and tight. I wish I could have my drawers come out that good. Great job!!

Mariva, that box is fantastic, the craftsmanship is excellent and your customer I am sure was very happy, which makes for a great life at home. hope your enjoying the summer holidays, between the beach and the mountains I hope to get a few days in the shop, my best customer has a few projects on her list also, though I don’t think I can match your sewing box! Buon Ferragosto!

That is a very cool design. I like it.
