Here is a jewelry box I made as a Christmas gift for our neighbors daughter. I call her the “little girl next door” because I do not remember her name. They have been living next door to us for three years now. I do know her dad’s name though. Anyway, the box is made of sycamore. The trays are made of oak. The top tray is a design based on some I have seen on this sight. Her mom said she loves it.

My daughter wants us to move next door to you! I have not seen sycamore used too much lately, but this makes it look just great. That was a lovely gift!

No doubt that little girl will remember your name for a long time to come Leith. Wonderful gesture with a beautiful box. Nice job.

Beautiful box. I don’t quite remember seeing one made of sycamore. I’m getting ready to harvest some after winter. Thanks for posting:

Great job showcasing the grain in that. I doubt that was the young girl’s first thought though!

Well done and happy New Year.
