Here is a Cherry Box with a curly maple veneered top. She likes to color alot so this is what I made her this Christmas. I think it will hold all of her coloring needs.

Very nice box. Looks to hold an entire rainbow of colors. Am sure she will cherish this for a lifetime.

Keep it up.

I can picture her bringing it out to colour with her grandchildren—it will always be cherished, I’m sure.
