Thanks for taking a look.

I really like this particular inlay a lot. You did a great job on it and the box too.

Joey, nice design. If nothing else this should have a lot of kid appeal. Great job on the inlay. That appears to be a very exacting task. The wood contrast adds to the look as well. Keep boxing and keep boxing.
