A birthday gift for 17 year old Pia. CNC flowers on front, tree of life inside w/brass plate wishes from Mom & Dad. Red ceader, with cherry inlay, magnetic latch, aircraft hinges. Stained with Cabernet (not needed), covered the cedar and cherry too much.

Beautiful, I bet she loves it.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That is a beautiful piece!The design, attention to detail and your craftsmanship is really matchless.

Late Note: The aircraft (model airplane) hinge did not work, had to remove them by drilling out and recuting an angle to mount regular hinges.
