Awesome idea! I love the Magic playing cards making their way into the photos :) That is some fancy nerd-ery right there!

It’s been a long time since I have played that game. Man If I had thought to make card boxes like this I might have kept my collection.

Bring that to a tournament. Great work.

That is very pretty; it reminds me of a colonial candle box. I have a picture of one of the originals.

Did you do stopped dados for the box bottom grooves? I’m in the process of making one now and I’m trying to figure out the best way.
