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.

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.
