Box lid and base are quilted maple, sides are birds eye, the ribbon over the top is Cumaru, and Mahogany. I made a mistake on the opening rabbits therefore had to wrap the box with a ribbon so the lid would fit.

Very Creative design; nice grain contrast and the colors go well together. A craftman is someone that can accept making a mistake and correct it. Nicely done!

Funny how sometimes mistake fixes turn out better than if you didn’t make the mistake. The extra accent adds nice detail to the box. Well done.
