From start to finish it took about two hours to complete this little box. Simple 45 degree angle joints and some rabbet cuts in the bottom where the bottom piece fits. Well it must have been desirable because a customer at the art show where I had it displayed snatched it up after 4 seconds of deliberation. Tough sell, she was.

Thanks, everybody! I appreciate the compliments. Exactly; walnut needs to stain, dye, colorant, paint, etc….....
