That’s a really great! first box. the maple & alder looks great together. I like how the maple flame points up the sides.

For your first box. WOW! Keep up the great work. I’m sure you will do graet things with your designs.

That was my first jewelry box, I’ve made a treasure chest type box for the grandkids for Xmas. The wife said it was to nice and kept it….. So I made a couple of smaller boxes for the kids…..and airplanes… The next project in a bread box with a roll top type lid…. Thanks for all the comments. The people here are very nice, and I enjoy looking at all the things that people do to bring out the beauty in a chunk of wood…..Montana Bob

Very nicely done!
A project does not need to be large to impress and this proves it.
