Keepsake Box for our flower girl at my wedding. She is graduating college now, so I feel old. Maple, Walnut and Mahogany stripe. The inside dividers are removable if needed. Bowties on the miters to strengthen the joint.

Thanks helluvawreck and Richard. Richard I of coarse take X-rays for a living and my patients usually say that it “stinks getting old”. I remind them the alternative isn’t so good. :)

Very nice, I like the wood choices.
