I like to tinker mostly in making puzzles and toys for children. But when I saw the Bow/Ribbon box in a video on youtube along with a template for the box and ribbon, I knew I had to try it. It’s made of poplar and red oak. Next time I’ll try inlay for the ribbon, but not having a planer will take me much longer. Everything item I make has a beeswax rub (no chemical additives or perfumes added) I make myself and then rubbed onto the finished project. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to post this :)

Ribbon always looks great on boxes, no matter how you done it, it can’t turn bad. Nice old, nature look.

A sweet box. Very nice Ribbon.
You’ve put the Excaliber to good use, by golly.
