It started off as one box, but I came across a nice piece of closeout wood at my local lumber shop, and I realized that I could make two twin boxes that were “negatives” of each other. One would be cherry with walnut accents, and the other would be walnut with cherry accents.

It was also my first time flocking in a suede liner, which went okay but could have gone better. It was a learning experience.

Details of the build can be found on my Tumblr.
