Excellent work. That figured wood must have been somewhat difficult, but it came out really great. Well done!

Very nice box. I like the burr elm lid, great figure. Never heard of gifkins jig before, but it did give great results. Was it easy to learn how to use?

Just came across this project, really nice job! The elm gives it a lot of character.
