Nice job on the box Clint! Is the lid hinged or just fitted on top? The design (kamon) that you used happens to be my family crest.

Thanks for posting,

Hi, Daiku, the lid is a loose fit on the box. There was a paulownia tree on the property next to my boyhood home that I got to harvest a few years ago. This is from that tree. I love the wood.

Paulownias are common iin the Mid-Atlantic area as seeds that came over from Japan in the early trading days were scattered. The purple blossoms in the Spring are very sweet smelling.
