This is my first completed project useing mahogany. I found this wood somewhat difficult to work with but I do like the end result. This box is made as a gift for my great granddaughter to store her crayons.

Very nice looking box, I like the look of mahogany myself. I like the way you made the box capable of being
opened completely from either end, it is always nice to make things simpler for great granddaughters. Thank
you for sharing. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Nice little box, box joints are always fun, but, mahogany is hard wood, better finish it with something crayons can be cleaned off of, kids love to crayon boxes, lols, thanks for sharing
