Yes, I do like the box and am also intrigued as to how the dome was made, it would be good to see the box again once the carving is completed. Nice job, well done.

Mike -

Ditto the comments above.

I would be interested in how you did the dome top . . . perhaps some photos and a blog entry next time you do a similar project . . . :-)

Please post a photo after the carving.

Very sweet, Mike!

With the lid closed, though, it kinda looks like a casket to me. :-)

It looks like a little wine coffin. LOL. Your woodworking is really precise, Mike. I enjoy all of your projects!

Just like a little wine casket. Really brings home the meaning of the phrase “another dead soldier” for oenophiles who put away lots of bottles.

Very pretty!
