Another box, this one for my second grandaughter’s 1st birthday.

Figured maple, cherry, and bubinga, tung oil finish with a coat of paste wax.

The butterfly was carved with a dremel with flex shaft.

Thanks for looking

This is a very nice box and I can only imagine how much your grandaughter loved it. Nice going, grandpa.

Elegant, impressive without being “in your face”, and a very steady hand on the Dremel. My compliments and congratulations. A lovely balance of elements.
