My first box. I used an random piece from my firewood pile for the sides. (I think it is Hackberry). Black Walnut for the top and bottom. Hand cut dovetails. I even made my own rabbet plane to finish the project.

It will be a lovely birthday gift for my daughter.

Excellent box, I really like the grain of the wood. Compliments.
