Mike, I too, followed the building of this project. The laminating of the woods to make the stripes was, IMHO, inspired. Love the note on the bottom, detailing the woods used in the project. Sure to become a charished keepsake. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, I really like this! One of those boxes I can’t stop looking at. So simple and complex looking at the same time. Nice job!
