The story is as follows. Sometime back a lady brought me very old looking small (Appx. 8 1/2” across X 6 1/2” high X 7” deep) keepsake/jewelry box that was in bad repair. She said her husband brought it to her when he came home from Japan in 1945. It was was made from some soft wood which I could not identify. I repaired it as best I could. I thought this was a really cute little box and ask her permission to make one like it. When it was finished she liked it so well she just had to have it. Since then have made a couple more in walnut and a cedar one. It is surprising how much small jewelry will fit onto this. Thanks for looking.

I like the hidden effect. The front door is super. Well done.
