that elm is really a neat wood, you never know what the grain is going to look like.the legs and lid are neat,like the boxes with some kind of legs they don’t look like they just grow out of top of furniture. great work.

That is a great looking box. I really like the grain patterns in the elm, especially on the lid.

Elm is a challenge and smells bad, but when it works it is great.

Good job.

Wonderful project. I have always considered Elm to be a horribly underrated wood. I love the grain and quality of it.

Very nice box, I really like the shape of the legs. What did you use to make the ring holders? I have wanted to try something like that in one of my boxes.
