I made this box for my friend who has had a lot of life altering challenges lately. I know he collects guns so I made the top with my cnc machine. The sides I used through dovetails. The bubinga is a nice wood to show off any details. Thanks for looking.

Unfortunately my friend passed away, but I was honored that the family wanted to use this as an urn for Bob’s ashes
