I made this as a Valentine gift for my fiancée. I think it came out pretty decent for a first effort, although it’s hardly perfect. Learned some lessons for next time. The box is African mahogany, walnut and maple, with curly maple pulls.

That’s a pretty darn cool looking box for your first one. I’m sure your fiancee loves it also. Congrats on a nice job.
