I was asked to make a box for the Charity silent Auction for the Children’s Hospital here in Ft. Myers.

This box (front/back) curly maple, (sides) rose wood, top crotch walnut. Ribbon is blood wood, ash, and sapele. I used the ibox for the finger joints, brusso hinges for the lid.

Sold for 250$ all for a good cause. Happy with that. I was told the new owners love it. (isn’t that what most of us want to hear?)
