Clean, elegant design and craftsmanship Clay. And I really like the red lining with the Oak. Classic box and thanks for sharing it with us.

Some of the best box’s are the simple ones. I’m sure your niece will enjoy it for a long time. Good job.

That’s a nice clean little box and you did a great job on it.

You can never go wrong with a well built simple box. I say “simple” very loosely seeing how we all know it isn’t simple. Good stuff Clay…. I’m sure your niece will love this forever….
