This box is made from cedar, 100 year old oak and pine. My mom has been waiting for a box for a while so this is for her. I love these projects, they fire me up to make more. Great gift for anyone.

I’ve just never been able to get these quite that nicely.

Thank you Jordan that means a lot coming from a great artist like you! As you know sharp tools and a lot of sanding!

Never would have come up with that wood combination – looks great, what did you finish it with?
Roughly – what is the size?
Execution looks great too. I like the shape of the pull with the box.
Nicely done!
