Hey guys and gals,
This palm box was laminated and designed by my beautiful wife. She let me put it together though. A nice little twist on a very fun project.

Your wife has good taste and she did a beautiful job on the laminating. It’s beautiful, Leith. It looks like you two certainly make a good team.

There is a lot to be said about this. My wife tells me what she wants and its my job to make it look the way she wants it to look. If she is not happy, nobody is.

That’s a very cool box. I always enjoy seeing your work. Kudos to your wife, for an excellent design. I like your Cubs hat, also.
