Aj, I like this project. The hardware is first class as is the work. Nature did make a beautiful piece of wood, but you managed to put it at its best advantage. I like the surprise of seeing the most beautiful part of the top on the inside of the lid.

Usually I put the sap or light wood at the bottom of my boxes, but I see the top and the side colors blend well with your version, and there is that surprise factor.

Welcome to Lumberland. You might consider editing your post to include approximate dimensions. It helps readers get a better grasp of what is pictured.

This is a wonderful starting post and great work. Thanks for sharing. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Nice box. That is some really unusual wood. I like that a lot

You probably shouldn’t pay much attention to Big Al. He’s a real beginner. Go to his home page and look at his projects

Welcome to LJ’s AJ.
That is a lovely box but then mother nature has always done the most beautiful landscapes.
You’ve showcased them well.
