Need a little help here guys. I made this box out of plywood and pecan. Problem is that it looks like a sarcophagus. Anyone have any ideas what I can liven it up a bit with?????

I dont know, I think just a nice finish and it will be done. Sometimes simple is the way to go.

How about putting some feet on it? Have a play with curves, perhaps not quite Queen Ann style, just something that will lift it up and complement the shape that is already there.
