Just a little box made from birch with walnut details and a OSB lid insert .
This box went to a little girl who’s mother endured cancer and recovered but put a lot of strain on her family .
My daughter felt that a special gift was in order for this little girl and this is what I made for her .
The surprise in her eyes said it all and that is good enough for me .

A wonderful and thoughtful gift. The box looks great, as usual. The inside detail and finish is also outstanding.

Very attractive! This will make an elegant gift for a little girl who sounds like could use something special. Outstanding job for a special present.

Very nice and I bet her smile was priceless! Love how you put the kerf around the walnut strip. Deceptive craftsmanship at its finest.

You are a good man Klaus.
....... and a great craftsman to boot.
Do I detect a bit of that new high end material OSB on the top?

Another winner!

AND – it sounds like you were well paid…

During my four year Navy stint I spent a lot of time in Japan and this wonderful box elicits memories associated with soji screens, bamboo floor matting, etc. I think you have really nailed the style with this one Kiefer. I also think you have made a gift that this girl will cherish forever. Very well done on both accounts.
