My first go at a small box. Pretty simple design, dovetailed sides with a rabbited bottom and dado sliding top. The sides and bottom are made from a redbud tree that we cut out my parents yard a couple of years ago. I milled it on my table saw and let it dry in the loft. The sliding top is walnut. Simple finish with just a couple coats of Danish Oil and some paste wax. I filled it with some sassafrass shavings for the aroma and then a bottle of wine to give to my Mom for Christmas since it was her tree.

Comments, critiques, and questions always welcome.
Thanks for looking,

-- --Zach
