This oval box was done for a family gift exchange, this is actually my wife’s giftee, but i did the box and she did the finishing. i gave the guitar pick holder.
the name is “Mildre” by the way, and is kind of difficult to read it but as an ambigram most of them are like that. it is inlaid in rosewood. the white ring around its actually a mistake as i cut where i was not supposed to, i had to separate the two cover pieces after cutting the letters but i did not, so i just glued the white piece to the rosewood and it actually looks really pretty. as my dad says, with glue and sawdust you can fix almost any mistake.
and my cousin Mildre loved it, she was taking pictures of it and with it, and was showing it to everybody, so i think we did ok.
