A small box made of Iowa walnut with a three gereration connection to the maker’s family. .
Beautiful box joints highlight the drawer which slides through from either end like a matchbox.
A turquoise inlay on the top establishes the visual pun of “xbox.”
A dated maker’s mark is burned into the bottom.
A hand rubbed oil finish adds a beautiful luster.
The perfect size for special rings or other small treasures.

Looks pretty nice. Crushed turquoise always looks good, and the box joints are pretty nice.

Looks great, Did you use inlay turquoise for the inlay or did you crush it yourself?
