Made as a 21st birthday gift, this box with the recipient’s initials inlaid was made to house a collection of life’s little treasures and to serve as a lasting keepsake in it’s own right.
Built on a birch ply base, the main veneer is Tiger Myrtle with trims of African Ebony and Rock Maple.

Simple elegance.
As is often said simple is anything but simple. This is so clean, just elegant if I may repeat myself.
..... and the lettering is really nice and crisp.

Really well done, thanks.

The lettering is so crisp. Well done overall, I hope the recipient realizes just how nice this box is.

The simplicity of this box speaks volumes. I agree with Shipwright, this is elegant. How did you make the initials?
