A keepsake box for my newest Granddaughter, made of Poplar. I’ve added the 4th 5th and 6th pics. This box is for the Granddaughter on the left. They are 1 year apart. Bentlee is on the left and sister Carlee on the right. Carlee just started kidergarten this year, 2015. Looks like we have some artists in the family. 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!
