Here’s one that I made in a couple hours.

I was really just testing some glued scraps together and how they would look. But then I decided to make a smal;l box to use the material as a lid. It turned out fairly nice.

Nice box Bwillie. I guess I’m going to have to get a lot faster at making boxes if you can do this in just a couple of hours. Good work.

You all are very kind. I’m just a detailed sawdust maker which happens to produce something useful. I’ve got many more projects to post, so check back later if you like. Kindest regards,
