I made this box with Cigar Smoking, Ice Skating Bears laser burned into the lid. The wood is recycled Redwood and Cedar. Hinge on the back is Brass plated. Have been making quite a few boxes and I find it enjoyable to do so.

Thumb, I like the bear imagery. It is fun. You might consider mortising the hinges and rounding off the edges and corners a bit. For smaller boxes I usually plane the wood down to 5/8 and 45 the corners. I know your major focus is the pyrography (and it is beautifully done), but you might want to improve the construction of your boxes as you go. There are some box making hints in the index of this posting. Keep boxing and keep posting.

It’s a nice looking box.
