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.

Nice clean lines on your box.

My wife was asking for one more photo with the lid completely removed.

Thanks,
