Yep, 62 in total. 2 have managed to sneak away already. One more slated to go on Monday. The remainder for the daughter’s baby shower favors, coming in mid January.

Woods used: Cherry: box sides and top Ash: white in ribbon Walnut: brown in ribbon Poplar: box bottom

Finish: Danish oil on the cherry and poplar, before attaching ribbons. Then General Finishes High Performance Topcoat, 2 good coats.

Thanks for looking.

Holy crap! Now that’s a box binge. I think you may need an intervention.

They look absolutely fantastic, like this all on one place. Nice choice of woods. Contrasts are great.
