Nice boxes.

The lid on the third box is just beautifull. That wood looks like its moving.

Beautiful work! I like them all but the top on the box in the 3rd and 4th pic is really nice and rustic. And I echo Tokolosi on the 3rd box lid….........unreal flow of the grain. Great job.

I know how hard those can be; oh I know all too well how hard, and those look really great.

The grain in that last one is pretty amazing. Quilted maple? Just a guess, I’m still not great at identifying wood types

Very nicely done on the boxes. The fit and finish are outstanding.

At first I thought gfadvm was offering you some road apple wood and I was going to say be carful of using it. ;-)
