I built this Intarsia Santa Picture Box for the Christmas Box Build-Off Contest over at A Simple Design of Ocala. It was my first attempt at doing intarsia which is a lot of fun. It measures about 6”x9”x4” and is made from a single cedar board and some pine. It will be used to store my family’s Santa pictures that have been taken over the years and put out for display at Christmas time.
