Box was a Mothers Day Present for my Wife and was the result of 2 X 4 contest at our local Woodworkers Guild. Took 1st prize? Actually cut down a 2 X 6 so I had 1/4 sawn wood to work with. Made with 5 degree angles and dovetailed.
Last Pic was left over wood not including cut offs! Finished with a couple of coats of Spar varnish.

Showoff! :-) Seriously, you have elevated lowly cedar go a new level! It’s really beautiful!
