Fantastic! I thought a jewelry box was supposed to hide treasures on the inside… It is going to outshine anything you put into it.
Bet you have made Tami a very happy woman… hope you have enough cash left over… I see a jewelry store shopping spree in your future!

Thank you for your comments.

I should rename it a keepsake box. This is the third one I make, and it is a present for my oldest daughter. The first went to my wife and the second to my youngest.

Karson, it has been a very productive summer, and I have one more project on the way before my trip to Michigan, a veterans flag display box for my father in law that past away last December.
