Welcome to LJs. With work as impressive as that, you should be right at home.

I’m sure your wife was very impressed and happy with the gift. Only thing is, what are you going to do next year?

OMG…I hope your wife appreciated the work & care that went into making the box!
I’m with Tootles….how are you going to top that?
Just beautiful!

That would be perfect for putting my wooden roses in at my craftshows for when people take them home for gifts.
