Made a cherry box with sapele trim for my 15 year old daughter. She made her dad happy when she really liked it. Hardware is Brusso. Very nice to work with.

Very nice and although it looks like a simple little box, we all know better.

Very sleek looking box. It’s great when you can see the smile on the face of the receiver. Makes it all worth it.
