Completed rose box. Heidi (kolwdwrkrsgirl) carved the rose. Box is Maple and Padauk. This box is for a charity, and will be sent to Colorado. As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.

Hi Keith, WOW and double WOW…............ beautiful, beautiful wood combination, one of my favorites.
The rose carving is just superb, you and Heidi make a great team. It REALLY makes the box jump out at you.

I love the simple but elegant sleek lines of the legs, proportioned just right!

Someone is going to be a very lucky proud owner of this masterpiece.

Thanks for sharing
