I made a box in a box for decoration that I had seen in a magazine. I put some nice looking stain to make the Oak veneer come out real nice and shiny. The 3 and the 88 turned out better than I thought for doing it for my first time with the dremmel.

This is unlikely to be your last box Pete! The bug is likely to get to you. Was the Dremel engraving done freehand?

I want to provide a sterner warning than Yorkie did. Boxes have been proven to be habit forming. Especially when they turn out as well as this one did and you also had to go and add a nice carving to it as well.
My friend I sadly must say that there is probably no hope for you at this stage. You are hooked. Your only remedy is to keep producing boxes at regular intervals. :)
Thanks for the post.
