With the help of a friend I finally learned how to post my project pictures here on LJ. I sure hope you don’t get tired of seeing my boxes lol.
I made this keepsake box as a wedding gift for my cousin and his bride. The front and back are Pacific Coast Figured Maple as well as the lid. The ends are Chechen. The lid accents are Caraco De Negro and the handle is Morado. I really enjoy using exotic hardwoods mixed with domestic hardwoods. Thanks for looking.

Several boxaholics here that I am sure won’t mind. Me included. Love seeing new ideas.

Great box.

Glad you got it figured out. I look forward to seeing more of your boxes. I need some new ideas like the curved sides!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Doug, this is a beautiful build. I like your use of curved lines, and appreciate that you took time to build a tray, rails, and dividers. This is a real finished product.

There is a learning curve on postings. Took me a while too. I am glad you have it down now. I like your use of natural settings to highlight your work. Nice job on the photos too.

Keep boxing and keep posting.

Another beautiful creation. I can’t decide which of your boxes I like best. Both have some really well done craftsmanship and great wood choices.
