Hi, guys!

Gorgeous work Ragim! I love the choice of woods and your cutting is excellent, probably the best I’ve seen with ribbons. I have to try some boxes like this in the future.

Beautiful box, the ribbons on the lid and side look great. Really amazes me how all the box makers do them, going to have to try it some day.
