Boy,3-1/2 months later its finally done.My good friend is having twins and has a baby now so hes gonna need this toy box.329 pieces for the intarsia all hardwood and exotics including ebony,wenge,and cedar for the box.I wood burned his tatoo under the lid to personalize it,turned out great and had lots of fun making it.I would come home from work and make a set or two of animals on most nights.put them aside till they were done then made the ark then the box.You guys have to make one, my friend cried and gave me a big hug when he saw it.And the baby was all over it.This is my second one and I get graet feedback on both of them.

I have seen this pattern for a few years. ALWAYS wanted to make it but never had a reason. (No one to use it) I always wondered how it looked other than in the catalog. This is even far more beautiful! What a wonderful job. I JUST LOVE THIS!!!
