Here is a Christmas present I made for my daughter. This is my first attempt at a small box. I used some Oak left over from another project but wanted something a little prettier for the top so I picked up the Curly Maple.

Looks wonderful. From what I can tell, you did an excellent job on wrapping the grain around the box. A sure sign of a first class job. I am sure she will enjoy that for a long time to come.

Keep up the good work

Cool, looks very nice. Clean lines, beautiful wood. Tight.

Good box. Those corners are nice. The splines add a nice look to it. Your choice of woods are very complimentary.

A very good looking and sturdy box, compliments on the first attempt. Your daughter will cherish it for a lifetime.

Be careful, boxes can become an addiction very easily.
