Hi Everyone

Here is another of my first series of 8 boxes. This box we gave to Cindy’s granddaughter Aaliyah as a baby box, it has dove tail joints, with a picture framed ash centered lid, one of my first attempts at a mitered picture frame lid. The floor is just a luon, glued and tack with brass nails. I used only paste wax as a finish, I put coat after coat on it and rubbed and rubbed till it really shined. It’s been 4 years or so now, I hear she took possession of her box and decided to give it a coat of another type of wax, crayons, looks like I will have some more finishing work in the future. Lots of fun and joy making and sharing these boxes with our family. Thanks for looking

Very, very nice. The Ash panel is a nice touch. DT’s look good and tight.
Thx for sharing.

I like the contrasting grain of the ash piece. Nice!
