Nice job, how is the fit on the lid? I like the knot in the side. Fantastic piece of wood.

Fantastic box. The design is great and the rosewood is outstanding. The knot in the side is a nice added touch.

Great job. Keep it up.

Very nice. Great job on the turning, I can’t even tell where the part line is for the top. Great attention to detail.
