Here is another box made for someone who has no clue that they are going to receive this. It probably never crossed their mind that I would do this for them. It actually didn’t cross my mind until someone said the soon to be recipient seen a photo of another box I made and wanted one.

Wood: Leftover Peruvian Walnut, and oddly enough but with in hands reach when I was laminating the wood strips in the lid, cedar. I also included an epoxy/turquoise fill on the lid. The outside dimensions are 8” x 7” x 4-3/4”

Finished in glossy lacquer.

Thanks for look’n!
