I made this last friday from some rough-cut pecan. The tree came down a couple of years ago in a windstorm. It was one of those times that I needed a gift real quick and I remembered some boxes that Andy specializes in. The recipient seemed to like it.

Was it a hit, or miss?

Great job…The pecan is nice looking and your work looks excellent. Looks like you might have the box making bug.
I know how those one day marathons are and now that I have all my Christmas commissions and gifts complete as of Monday, I plan to try to stretch my projects out. Way too many 14 hour days.
