This a box made from pine and stained mahogany. The leaf on top is also pine and sanded and cut to look like a maple leaf in autumn. This box is for my mother who left her home in Canada when she was a child and long to returns someday.

That’s cool. I like the way you sculpted your box. It looks like the leaf landed in a puddle.

Beautiful box, and as a Canadian, I can tell you that you did a great job on the maple leaf as well. Nice job!
