A keepsake box for my newest Granddaughter, made of Poplar. This will be painted up by my Daughter, and her step-Daughter. Thanks for the look

That is really nice! You did a beautiful job with all the joinery. You will have to try to get a picture when it is painted and add it in so we can see what she did with it. :)

Great job on this, very tight joints looks great. I’m sure she loved it or will when she get older!
